Watch the episode of The Agenda on iTunes

UntitledOur episode of The Agenda with Steve Paikin from last Thursday, October 17 on the topic of the “Silencing of Science in Canada” is available to be watched for free from the iTunes store here (or on Youtube below).  Have a gander at our conversation and let me know what you think.

I thought it went well overall except for being asked to comment on the trade-off between federal and provincial levels of funding for Science.  I don’t have much to say on that topic, so I tried to steer the answer towards the trade-off between investments in basic vs. applied aspects of Science, a pertinent and important aspect of this conversation, but Steve stopped me and redirected the question.  How would you have responded?
