Attack on science & technology - watch 5th Estate Fri 9 p.m.

[This item received from Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT)]
The CBC’s Fifth Estate has been working for more than one year on his documentary on the attack on science and knowledge creation in Canada.  It airs tonight at 9 p.m. in all time zones and is titled “Silence of the Labs.”  The trailer for the program can be seen at http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/episodes/2013-2014/the-silence-of-the-labs. 


There is a good deal of media coverage of this blockbuster program already – e.g., a story running in most of the Postmedia newspapers today http://www.leaderpost.com/technology/Science+abandoned+scientists+muzzle....
 
Margaret Munro, one of Canada’s top science journalists, has a powerful article on devastation resulting from federal departmental library closures, also in today’s Postmedia papers - http://www.ottawacitizen.com/technology/Last+chapter+many+Environment+Ca....
