Mr. Speaker, I am happy to hear the opposition is finally taking an interest in science funding after a decade of neglect.
Our government believes in research, science, and scientists and the important work they do. That is why we have made the largest increase in the three federal granting councils in a decade. That is why we have reinstated the long-form census, unmuzzled our scientists, and launched the search for the chief science adviser. I look forward to building on these commitments.
