Ottawa contributes operating funds for CLS

While still there is no news about the future of CRL, Ottawa contributes operating funds for CLS: ..."The federal government, through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), is pumping up to $67 million into the Canadian Light Source (CLS) synchrotron over five years.
The money will go toward operating and maintenance costs of the CLS, located at the University of Saskatchewan.
“It is paying the salaries, it is helping us to operate the facility,” said CLS executive director Josef Hormes. “It means staying state-of-the-art, cutting-edge research is what we can offer our users.”
The federal funding, which would cover up to 40 per cent of the costs, is contingent on the CLS coming up with the remaining 60 per cent from other sources."
