OTTAWA-The author of a new book about the alleged muzzling of federal scientists says a leaked fundraising letter that featured a Conservative party logo could provide an interesting chapter to add to his research.

"This is really, really typical of the kind of indignant recklessness that this government seems to specialize in," said Chris Turner, a journalist who ran as a Green party candidate in a federal by-election in Calgary last year.

The Tory fundraising letter, leaked to Postmedia News, iPolitics as well as the Dryden Observer in the federal riding of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's science minister, Greg Rickford, asked Conservatives to send money to help the minister and the party fend off what it described as attacks from some scientists, who were labelled as "radical ideologues."
