A Fallow Year for Science in Canada (and a prescription for rescuing it)
Jim Woodgett

That’s a well reasoned perspective. I appreciate it. It’s a shame that the broader population isn’t more aware of these federal budget and administrative issues. How much more significant would this message be to government if it was coming from a larger slice of the population? I suppose when relatively few scientists engage the public in really meaningful ways about what they actually do, and how everyone gains, it would be tough to expect much interest in what you’re discussing above. That’s just some food for thought. Perhaps it’s a dish you’ve eaten before. I’m glad you’re putting the effort into this. The world our descendants inherit will be influenced by these funding and structural issues, and that is ultimately more significant than the consequences to the folks like you who run labs, or work in them like me, acute though the consequences may be.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
