NDP tables Motion 36 on Scientific Integrity

NDP tabled Motion 36 on Scientific Integrity which requires all federal departments and agencies to implement pro-science communication policies.  View the motion.

Kennedy Stewart, the NDP Critic for Science said:

“The new Minister for Science should get to work drafting ethics legislation that unequivocally ensures the open communication of scientific research throughout government.  In order to get this right, the government’s approach should be modelled off the scientific integrity directives implemented by President Obama following years of muzzling by the Bush Administration.”
