Canadian scientists breath 'sigh of relief' as Trudeau ekes out election victory - 2019-10-24
Canada's research establishment say the re-election of Justin Trudeau's Liberal party on Monday was a good outcome for science, and should see the country step up its role in the global struggle against climate change.
Before Monday's general election, researchers feared voters could make a hard turn and elect the opposition Conservative Party, which had pledged to cut public investment across the board.
"There was a sigh of relief with the outcome. Better than we expected," said Rémi Quirion, the chief scientist of Quebec.
