The Nature of Canadian Science

Richard Ackerman, Science Library Pad, Feb 22, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The British science journal Nature complains about the state of science in Canada. And as the Globe and Mail reports, "In a rebuttal letter to Nature, Industry Minister Jim Prentice writes that the government is committed to 'supporting world-leading research.'" All I can say (while Ackerman expresses no opinion whatsoever) is that the Canadian government funds me - and, with the provincial governments, virtually every other scientist in the country - and that can't be bad, can it?
