Science and Democracy under Threat: What can you do about it?

Our democracy is based on our leaders proving what they say with evidence, which is why the government employs scientists. The current federal government has muzzled scientists, ended the long form census, and, as a result, changed how you understand Canada. Now, our democracy is under threat and our panel of activists and experts discuss what we can do about this attack on our very way of life.
