misanthropologist: Oh goodie, a conservative populist, anti-intellectual, anti-social science article from the National Post. Color me shocked. This piece of fluff helps to illustrate why Canada no longer carries out a mandatory long-from census, and why the Conservative government continues to try to interfere in academic freedom, by mandating research funding be granted to "business-related" projects rather than allowing the funding agencies and scholars across the country to determine their own research agendas.The part that the author of TFA, many of the commenters on TFA, and TF Conservative Party and their supporters are missing is that sometimes empirical research confirms widely held assumptions. Sometimes empirical research also disproves those assumptions. That doesn't mean that research that confirms assumptions should not be funded because Dougie down at the bar could have told you the same damn thing for half the money (thus saving everyone some tax dollars).Learn the basics of science, morans.
