Cross Canada Marches for Science

When scientists march, we cite our sources!

Scientists across the world have been quick to act against Trump’s drastic policy decisions, and are organizing in response to these serious affronts to science. Scientists have been backing up data, setting up encrypted communication lines for American federal scientists to report from the frontlines, supporting their colleagues with offers of lab space and resources, speaking out on social media and on the news, and refusing to accept another war on science.

Evidence for Democracy is organizing a supporting March for Science on Parliament Hill on April 22, 2017 – in 4 days!  E4D is also supporting 16 satellite marches across the country. In Canada, we will stand once again in defence of science and its important role in policy, our society, and our democracy. We are not only acting in solidarity with American scientists, but are calling to safeguard science in Canada.
