Join us online on August 25 at 8pm ET to help make science and smart decision-making an election issue! 

Until recently, the negative consequences of federal funding cuts to public-interest science were largely unknown to Canadians. This is cause for concern considering these cuts affect monitoring programs that serve important public functions including sustainable management of fisheries, protecting species-at-risk, and keeping our drinking water clean.

On Tuesday, Evidence for Democracy launched the Science Pledge, the first part of its wider campaign to make science and evidence-based decision-making a federal election issue this year.

With featured input from Evidence for Democracy, Part 3 focuses on how science can fight back against ideological attacks.

May 19th was a big day for public science in Canada!
