The London chapter participating in a March for Science yesterday.
The Council of Canadians Kitchener-Waterloo, Victoria, Montreal and London chapters took part in yesterday's March for Science.
Yesterday, Global News reported, "Thousands of scientists worldwide, including those in 18 Canadian cities, are leaving their labs and taking to the streets to protest what they say are attacks against science. The main march was organized by a group of scientists in Washington looking to protest perceived attacks on science, while satellite marches also took place in 500 cities around the world."
And CTV explains, "This first ever 'March for Science' is advocating for robustly funded and publicly communicated scientific knowledge as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. Participants say they want political leaders and policy makers to enact evidence-based policies for the public good, and to safeguard the scientific community."
