Okanagan College: Making The Case For Evidence-based Science In The Political Arena
Making the case for evidence-based science in the political arena
A new era of optimism for science in Canada is emerging. Within days of coming into power, the federal Liberal government lifted a veil of secrecy by giving government scientists a green light to speak directly to the media and the public. This change invites the question: will we see science play an increasing role in government decision-making in the near future? Dr. Katie Gibbs, co-founder and Executive Director of Evidence for Democracy, will address this notion in a public talk titled “Evidence for Democracy: is science on the rise?” on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at Okanagan College’s Vernon campus lecture theatre.
