Advocating for Science in the Canadian Federal Election
Science doesn’t usually get a lot of attention during elections, and we think that needs to change. We need your help to send a message that Canadians care about science.
Update: Our thanks to everyone who worked hard to get science on the agenda in the 2019 federal elections. The election may be over, but we must continue to hold our representatives accountable to ensure policies are based on the best available evidence.
