Canadian government is 'muzzling its scientists'
"I suspect the federal government would prefer that its scientists don't discuss research that points out just how serious the climate change challenge is."

Yup been going on for a while now... I believe there was a report about the near-extinction of polar bears that was similarly suppressed.

Put down the crack pipe and Tim Hortons double double. Polar bears are not going extinct. They are migrating farhter south causing all kinds of problems for northern residents and grbage dumps.

Any scientist that preaches global warming is given tax payer money. David Suzuki ring a bell? However if you preach against man made global warming you are actually considered a terrorist for interfering with Goldman's Sachs carbon credit scam.

However if you want to voluntarily pay a carbon tax go right ahead but don't lobby the gov't to make me pay it asshole!

Canadian government is 'muzzling its scientists'
By Pallab Ghosh
Science correspondent, BBC News, Vancouver

Andrew Weaver, an environmental scientist at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, described the protocol as "Orwellian".
The information is so tightly controlled that the public is left in the dark”
The protocol states: "Just as we have one department we should have one voice. Interviews sometimes present surprises to ministers and senior management. Media relations will work with staff on how best to deal with the call (an interview request from a journalist). This should include asking the programme expert to respond with approved lines."
Professor Weaver said that information is so tightly controlled that the public is "left in the dark".
"The only information they are given is that which the government wants, which will then allow a supporting of a particular agenda," he said.
The most notorious case is of that of Dr Kristi Miller, who is head of molecular genetics for the Department for Fisheries and Oceans. Dr Miller had been investigating why salmon populations in western Canada were declining.
The investigation, which was published in one of the leading scientific journals in the world, Science, seemed to suggest that fish might have been exposed to a virus associated with cancer.
The AAAS meeting's discussion on muzzling is organised by freelance science reporter Binh An Vu Van. She says fellow journalists across Canada are finding it "harder and harder" to get access to government scientists.

Ms Vu Van claims that as well as "clear-cut cases of muzzling", such as the one involving Dr Miller, media relations officers use more subtle methods. She said that when she requests an interview, she has to enter into prolonged email correspondence to speak to a scientist she knows is ready and willing to be interviewed, often to be declined or offered another scientist she does not want to interview.

That's the last of the English speaking countries to be muzzled
