    Muzzling of federal scientists widespread, survey suggests

    Hundreds of federal scientists said in a survey that they had been asked to exclude or alter technical information in government documents for non-scientific reasons, and thousands said they had been prevented from responding to the media or the public

    Reminds me of the story of Shiv Chopra who worked for health Canada for 35 years before he was fired for insubordination.

    With support of his union, Dr Chopra and his colleagues refused to approve various harmful drugs intended for meat and milk production. He endured disciplinary actions, spoke out publicly, testified at Senate committees, and won federal court cases against Health Canada. Due to Dr. Chopra’s work, Bovine Growth Hormone was barred in Canada in 1999 and in the EU. He has spoken out on BGH, dangerous antibiotics like Revalor-H Baytril, and the true causes of mad cow disease.

    Funny how all politicians always talk about transparency !

    You have a big one now trying to BS is way out of the Senate scandals and it's the same one that red necks out west believed he could bring back 'transparency' after the Libs scandal (when they tried muzzling Quebec with their stupid commandites).

    Ottawa and specially the same clown was just slammed by Canada's own information commissioner on transparency.

    And you can still hear them saying 'C'est le plus meilleur pays' like an old broken record while the rest of the world moved on knowing these rednecks can't be trusted anymore.

    Have fun au pays de la BS !

    Nothing can at the moment compare to this....

    Takes a whole year to complete with great possibility of human error. If worst case scenario does happen we are all FUCKED. West Coast U.S. and Canada are already experiencing the effects. Not to mention the Pacific Ocean. And yet you don't hear about this much because of things being muzzled. What are these damn Japs that are powers that be thinking???? Building this kind of volatile tech on top on an earthquake prone area. That is right up there with asking for BBFS.
