Fed up with the ero­sion of sci­ence in Cana­da? Want our gov­ern­ment to sup­port sci­ence in the pub­lic inter­est? Think that deci­sions should be based on evi­dence and facts instead of ide­ol­o­gy? Join us on Sep­tem­ber 16th and attend the ral­ly in front of Wes­ley Hall, Uni­ver­si­ty of Win­nipeg (515 Portage Ave), on Sep­tem­ber 16 from 12:30 to 1:30 pm to Stand up for Science!

It’s time to stand up for sci­ence in the pub­lic inter­est in Cana­da. In recent years we have seen cuts to many impor­tant sci­en­tif­ic insti­tu­tions, sci­ence fund­ing has shift­ed focus towards the com­mer­cial­iza­tion of research, and gov­ern­ment sci­en­tists have lost the abil­i­ty to com­mu­ni­cate their research to the public.

Sci­ence mat­ters to Cana­di­ans. Good sci­ence, when cou­pled with good deci­sion-mak­ing, keeps our water and air clean, keeps us healthy, keeps our food safe and pre­pares Cana­da for the future. Sci­ence in the pub­lic inter­est is cru­cial for our well-being and long-term prosperity.

To make the pub­lic aware of this, and to call on the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment to make a strong com­mit­ment to sci­ence in the pub­lic inter­est, we are orga­niz­ing Stand Up for Sci­ence’ ral­lies across the coun­try on Sep­tem­ber 16th 2013.

We will be call­ing on the Fed­er­al gov­ern­ment to make a strong com­mit­ment to sci­ence in the pub­lic inter­est by:

  • Fund­ing sci­en­tif­ic research from basic sci­ence through to applied.
  • Using the best avail­able sci­ence and evi­dence to make the best decisions.
  • Sup­port­ing the open com­mu­ni­ca­tion of pub­licly fund­ed sci­ence to the pub­lic, unless there are demon­stra­bly good rea­sons for not doing so.

It’s your future — make it your science.
