EVENT: Death of Evidence – No science, no evidence, no truth, no democracy

Science in Canada is under assault. There is ample evidence that the Harper[[{“type”:”media”,”view_mode”:”media_large”,”fid”:”1405″,”attributes”:{“class”:”media-image alignright size-medium wp-image-15992″,”typeof”:”foaf:Image”,”style”:””,”width”:”180″,”height”:”90″,”alt”:””}}]]
government has mounted a systematic campaign to reduce the flow of scientific evidence to Canadians. We all suffer when decisions at the highest level are made with blind adherence to ideology rather than facts. To make the public aware of this, we are organizing a ‘Death of Evidence’ rally on July 10 to coincide with a large scientific conference taking place in Ottawa.

The demonstration will entail a funeral procession from the Ottawa Convention Centre commencing at 12 noon, followed by a rally at Parliament Hill. 

What: Death of Evidence Rally
When: July 10th, 12pm noon
Where: Departing from the Conference Centre (55 Colonel By Drive) to Parliament Hill
Notes: Everyone is welcome! Please bring a lab coat if you have one or dress in black if you don’t. Feel free to bring signs and/or other scientific or medical equipment. If you don’t have one, feel free to dress in black to show support (weather permitting).

If you are fed up with the closure of federal scientific programs and muzzling of scientists, if you think that decisions should be based on evidence and facts instead of ideology, then please come out and show your support.

We need your help to make this event a success. With the timing of this demonstration in conjunction with the conference, we have a rare opportunity to really make an impact. Please join us on July 10th to  celebrate the untimely death of scientific evidence in Canada.
