Winnipeg South Liberal candidate Terry Duguid is holding a public town hall forum tonight on “Ending the War on Science.”

The free event will feature Dr. Scott Findlay, co-founder of Evidence for Democracy, who will speak on the current state of science in Canada, including recent funding cuts and the so-called “muzzling” of federal scientists.

“Winnipeg has been hit hard by the Harper government’s cuts to science — the loss of over 50 National Research Council jobs, the attempted elimination of the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA), the closing of fisheries’ libraries — the list goes on,” said Duguid. “We are inviting members of the public who are concerned about the future of science, research, innovation and evidence-based decision making in Canada to join us for a lively discussion on these critical issues.”

The forum will run from 7-9 p.m. at the Canad Inns Fort Garry, 1824 Pembina Highway.
