A coalition of science and student advocacy groups have launched a campaign titled #VoteScience to encourage Canadians to advocate for pro-science candidates in Canada's upcoming federal election on October 21.

U of T's Toronto Science Policy Network (TSPN), together with the Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences (CSMB) and the Royal Canadian Institute for Science, held a panel on August 27 to inform voters about how they can identify and support these candidates.

Panel members included U of T Professor of Medicine Dr. David Naylor, Research Associate Dr. Amanda Veri, and CSMB Vice-President and Ryerson University Professor Dr. Imogen R. Coe.
