One of Canada's top biologists says he will not stop talking to the media after a government memo accused him of bias and speaking out of turn about the environmental impact of Alberta's oilsands.

Queen's University professor John Smol said Monday he was shocked and outraged to learn earlier this month of an internal Natural Resources Canada memo criticizing him over comments he made to reporters about a study on lakes near the oilsands.

"They cannot stop me from talking about research done in my lab," Smol told Huffington Post Canada.
