Canada's Information Commissioner Suzanne Legault will be heading up an investigation into six governmental agencies to determine whether the Harper government has been "muzzling" its scientists.
According to Democracy Watch (democracywatch.ca), "Canada’s federal Conservative government led by Prime Minister Harper has established new policies that hide government research and valuable information Canadians have paid for – policies that are the same as those George W. Bush put in place when he was U.S. President."
But there's hope!
