Preston Manning: Canada's science policy must be improved

I am in strong support of what Preson Manning has suggested to improve Parliaments ability to deal with scientific issues. Many of the paracopyright and Internet-regulating issues we are dealing with in this forum originate with a lack of science and tech knowledge on the part of various lobbiest, bureaucrats and politicians. While we can't mandate that lobbiests understand what they are lobbying about, we can expect our politicians to have adequate resources at their disposal to differentiate between science and science fiction.
