Liberals talk a good game, but science is still struggling - Many recommendations from the recent fundamental science review are being ignored. By @NDP science critic @kennedystewart in @TheHillTimes #supportthereport
To effectively #SupportTheReport, we need to invest in our PhDs not only with fellowships and grants but also with the tenure-stream positions that provide the time and resources to accomplish this crucial work for Canada in the decades to come.
CAN Advocacy Chair @mossy_fibers cited in @TheHillTimes special section on Research today - Next budget seen as a test of the @liberal_party commitment to Fundamental Research @JustinTrudeau @ScienceMin @Bill_Morneau @ChiefSciCan All scientists agree:#supportthereport http://pic.twitter.com/qPTjRuOh6d

Visited the exciting U of Miami last week. Young expats impressed by Can Gov tone/first steps (me too) & dismayed by Can funding rates/levels (me too). Note to our friends in Ottawa: Invest now, or lose an historic opportunity to repatriate talent. #supportthereport
Dear @ScienceMin, This week was at a @CIHR_IRSC panel Face2Face. Meeting was: -Long -Grueling -Complex But for 1st time since reforms peer review was -RIGOROUS -FAIR Far too few outstanding applications will be funded. The system is working again: Please #SupportTheReport
