More opposition to federal science cuts

More opposition to federal science cuts: ..."Steve Perry, dean of science at the University of Ottawa, told Harper the recent developments at NSERC "represent a 'perfect storm' of program changes and cancellations that will jeopardize Canada's international reputation and competitive edge as well as Canada's ability to respond to present and future challenges."
Perry noted the NSERC cuts "are in opposition to the stated priorities of the Government of Canada to foster knowledge and innovation."
Gary Goodyear, the minister of state for science, was not available to comment on the cuts at NSERC."
