As somebody whose job description is basically 'to innovate' a report like this is almost personal. Do we really not innovate in Canada? I see so much evidence to the contrary! But then when I look at the indices, I see the explanation: "Fewer scientific articles are published in Canada, fewer patents are granted." Does the Conference Board of Canada feel my work - which is government funded but which produces very few patents or formal publications - to be a "stunningly poor" showing? Well maybe. But perhaps the Conference Board doesn't understand 'innovation' any more. Perhaps it should to update its understanding before making declarations that are empirically implausible.
