Mr. Speaker, once again a Conservative politician is trying to shut down discovery that has long-term benefits.
We have seen this before. Ten years of cuts, the muzzling of scientists and overall mismanagement by the Harper Conservatives had researchers protesting on Parliament Hill. Our government, unlike the previous government and the Ford government, actually believes in science, research and evidence-based decision-making.
We are the government that has invested over $10 billion into research, and we will continue to support our researchers.
