Simon Donner, Liu Faculty Associate and Associate Professor of Geography, is hopeful that the newly elected Liberal government could rejuvenate Canadian science. 

Under Prime Minister Harper's administration, scientists faced funding cuts, federal lab closures, and a gag order preventing research scientists from speaking to the media. "It made science political, a partisan activity, and nothing could be further from the truth," says Donner.  Now that a new administration is about to govern under the leadership of Prime Minister-elect Justin Trudeau, scientists see a hopeful future for research and science in Canada.
