orkOur Right to Know Canada has released five videos in the series “Scientists are not Dogs”. They display in a humorous manner some of the things that have been happening to government scientists. Try the following links: The International Arctic Conference, the Pitch Meeting for Research Funding, the Ocean Contaminants’ Program, the Earth Science Department, and, for a charming ending, the Door to Door Politician.

You are encouraged to consider these videos as a lead-in to questions you and others can ask of candidates – questions that you can also discuss with your family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues. You will find an electronic version of the questions at the Our Right to Know website.
