The quiet cuts

Scientists are upset that the Experimental Lakes Area program will be cut. The benefits for RCMP officers will change. Lower Fort Garry will lose costumed interpreters. Funding for regional development groups in Atlantic Canada will be eliminated. Scientists within the Department of Fisheries might be laid off.

Meanwhile, CMA president John Haggie talks to Postmedia about his speech to an NDP hearing last week.

“Ideally, I would like to think my oratory would spur the government to change its direction and reconsider and perhaps alter its approach,” he said. “Realistically speaking, the other alternative is to mobilize everybody else on the basis that at some point, even if it comes to the ballot box in 2015, they will have to listen on the issue of the federal role in health care.”
