A passionately argued polemic against Stephen Harper's war on science.In this arresting polemic, award-winning journalist Chris Turner argues that Stephen Harper's war on basic science, science communication, environmental regulations, and the environmental NGO community is the most vicious assault ever waged by a Canadian government on the fundamental principles of the Enlightenment. From the closure of Arctic research stations and the opening of the Arctic to oil drilling to slashed research budgets in agriculture, dramatic changes to the nation's fisheries policy, and the muzzling of government scientists, Harper's government has effectively dismantled Canada's longstanding scientific tradition.
Drawing on interviews with scientists whose work has been halted by budget cuts and their colleagues in an NGO community increasingly treated as an enemy of the state, The End of the Enlightenment paints a vivid and shocking picture of a government that has abandoned environmental stewardship and severed a national commitment to the objective truth of basic science as old as Canada itself.
