Mr. Speaker, this government is cutting budgets and firing scientists. It lacks openness.
Every week, more and more researchers are receiving layoff notices. In this context, overseers and Conservative propagandists are being sent to record every word uttered by our scientists during the IPY 2012 conference. This is an act of intimidation designed to censor our experts.
Is the minister so afraid of the facts that he wants to do away with the scientific dimension of environmental protection in the Arctic?
