Polling opens for the Canadian election on October 9th with the final day to vote on the 19th. This election, the organization Evidence for Democracy (and many more!) are asking you to vote with science in mind.
The Canadian Conservative party blatantly ignores scientific facts in their policies and this has led to some horrible practices in Canada. The good news is that you can change that this October by voting for knowledge, look into the Science Integrity Project
Our project reflects the collective wisdom of 75 leaders â€” in science, indigenous knowledge, public policy, civil society, and governance â€” who are concerned about the erosion of an evidence-based approach to public policy decision-making in Canada.
The Science Integrity Project was created in response to growing concerns  that many public policy decisions made in Canada â€” and in its cities, provinces and territories â€” are not consistently supported by solid information derived from the best available evidence â€” from science and indigenous knowledge.
What is SIP:
Through a series of in-depth interviews and a national forum, we developed principles for improved decision making on the basis of the best available evidence.
