Science funding back in today’s Question Period

May 5, 2009

Ignatieff:“This is the only government anywhere that doesn’t seem to understand that investing in science research and technology is the key to the jobs of tomorrow. President Obama is investing more, the Ontario government is investing more, and the Conservative government cut $148-million from our research granting council. How does the government expect Canada to compete in the Information Age with policies derived from the Stone Age?”

Goodyear: “Absolutely false. In fact, the last time this country faced a recession in the mid 90s the Liberal government cut scientific research by $442-million. We take a different approach, Mr. Speaker, we’ve increased funding by $5.1-billion.”
