The Silence of the Labs
In the past few years, the federal government has cut funding to more than 76 world-renowned research institutes and hundreds of programs.

Now scientists have become unlikely radicals, denouncing what they call is a politically driven war on knowledge. In Silence of the Labs, Linden MacIntyre tells the story of scientists - and what is at stake for Canadians - from Nova Scotia to the B.C. Pacific Coast to the far Arctic Circle.
