David Suzuki speaks out against Stephen Harper at Stand Up for Science rally in Vancouver - 2013-09-16
"We now have a prime minister intent on pushing through the pipeline across British Columbia before all of the scientific information—the assessment—is even in," said the academic and famed environmentalist. "We don't make informed decisions that way. We have to assess the information available. But what we are now is we are threatened with politicians deciding, not only whether or not to listen to scientists, but the kind of information that scientists are allowed to tell us about."
The event was one of 14 protests staged across the country under the slogan Stand Up for Science.
