The CBC’s Fifth Estate has been working for more than one year on this documentary on the attack on science and knowledge creation in Canada. It airs tonight at 9 p.m. in all time zones and is titled Silence of the Labs. The trailer for the program can be seen here.
There is a good deal of media coverage of this blockbuster program already (e.g., a story running in most of the Postmedia newspapers today).
Margaret Munro, one of Canada’s top science journalists, has a powerful article on devastation resulting from federal departmental library closures, also in today’s Postmedia papers.
