March for Science 2018 was a success in Canada from coast to coast

The 2018 March for Science occurred from coast to coast on Saturday, April 14th. Science supporters gathered across the country to celebrate the amazing tool that is science and to call for stronger civic engagement and government support for the institution of science.

Canadians marched, rallied, braved the cold and freezing rain, told and listened to stories, and came out in full force to show their support for science and evidence-based decision making.

Here are recaps of the various events from last month:

This is a guest blog post by Dr. Eric Fisher. In this post Eric outlines the highlights of our recent Science and Social Media webinar with Samantha Yammine. 

 Dr. Eric Fisher is a scientist and entrepreneur. Eric earned his PhD at Dalhousie University, where he investigated how liver cells produce and destroy "bad cholesterol" particles. Eric then founded a startup called Labfundr, Canada's first crowdfunding platform for science. Eric lives in Halifax with his wife and dog, both of whom are smarter than him. Find him on Twitter @EricF1sher.

We have some great news to share!

Thanks to your efforts, the federal government announced today that they will provide some bridge funding for the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL) in the high Arctic into Fall 2019.
