I knew some of this but had no idea the list was so long. Sad and scary. Hopefully Harper's dictatorship is on its way out soon!

Tar sands are all he cares about. I realize budgets have to be made, but some of these cuts were not necessary and some should have been prioritized better. The Sciences are not the not only areas he has attacked, either.
