GM Watch: “Climate of fear” keeps numbers low at protest against muzzling of federal scientists

Claire Robinson reports on the Canadian government’s ongoing war against “inconvenient” science
The union that organised a protest against the muzzling of federal scientists in Canada says few federal employees participated because they were scared of the consequences (see articles below).

The Canadian government has a long history of government suppression of its scientists’ concerns. Starting in 1998, three government scientists, Dr Shiv Chopra, Dr Margaret Haydon, and Dr Gerard Lambert, were reprimanded, muzzled and eventually dismissed in 2004 for insubordination for voicingtheir concerns about the potential health effects of Monsanto’s GM bovine growth hormone cattle drug.
