Why Canada must stand up for Science

In December, Toby Brown, Post Doctorate Fellow, Physics & Astronomy, wrote about Canada’s ability and obligation to support scientific endeavours. His article, “Canada must make science great again,” appeared on The Conversation and in The National Post.

Brown argues for the importance of science and the need to support research as it is key to a healthy and prosperous society. As he says: “It is hard to exaggerate the benefits that growth in the knowledge economy has on a society. Education and research are key drivers of innovation and prosperity while simultaneously making economies more efficient and mobile. The result is that, despite President Trump’s assertions, the societies who invest in science are the ones with the highest living standards, the best environmental protection and the strongest economy.”
