Liberal Party statistics on government funding for research
Here is the “just the facts” document the liberals released a couple of days ago.
What do they think of the $5.1-billion figure the Government continues to cite as its investment in science and research?
They “…. are not dedicated towards actual research projects, nor will the money necessarily even go towards infrastructure to create such projects.”
and of the total federal funding?
“According to Statistics Canada, total federal funding for science and technology in 2008 was $365 million less than in 2005 when adjusted for inflation”
