1984 in 2012 – The Assault on Reason by Allan R. Gregg

A must read by Allan R. Gregg, a well-known Canadian pundit and former Progressive Conservative pollster: "1984 in 2012 – The Assault on Reason": "Ok, so now the facts were beginning to tell a different story. This was no random act of downsizing, but a deliberate attempt to obliterate certain activities that were previously viewed as a legitimate part of government decision-making – namely, using research, science and evidence as the basis to make policy decisions. It also amounted to an attempt to eliminate anyone who might use science, facts and evidence to challenge government policies."
