Calling on your participation for the 2018 Provincial Elections!

Calling on your participation for the 2018 Provincial Elections!

Dear Science enthusiasts,

Are you interested in the relationship between government and science? CIC Toronto is compiling a questionnaire that will be used to interview different MPP (Member of Provincial Parliament) candidates in the University-Rosedale electoral district and we want to make sure that your voices are heard. We will be asking candidates to comment on their and their party’s views on the following topics:

  • science funding (including research funding and graduate scholarships and bursaries)
  • scientific literacy among the public (including public health and climate change-based policies)
  • representation of historically marginalized groups in STEM and politics
  • science representation at Queen’s Park

If you have a topic you would like your future MPP’s to discuss please send us an e-mail at jose.mendezcampos@mail.utoronto.ca  with the subject “2018 Provincial election” by February 16th and we will include the most popular or intriguing questions in the questionnaire.

Thank you,

 

José E. Méndez Campos
