Event Description

For Open Access Week, join us in mourning the passing of evidence-based decision making in Canada.  From the cancelling of the long form census, to the cuts at Library and Archives Canada, to the muzzling of Canadian government scientists, it’s been a tough few years for evidence in Canada. Our beloved friend has finally given up the ghost.

Following the funeral there will be snacks and an opportunity to send a postcard to the Prime Minister of Canada on behalf of Evidence.

Our Eulogists:

Dawn Bazely (Speaking for muzzled scientists)
Janet Friskney (Speaking for Library and Archives Canada)
Valerie Preston (Speaking for the long form census)
