Well, this is depressing to learn. I’d be even more depressed if I were Canadian. All I can say to my neighbors to the north is that I feel your pain, albeit belatedly. I just learned that the recently appointed Minister of State for Science and Technology within Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Cabinet is Gary Goodyear. So what’s the big deal?
Gary Goodyear is an chiropractor. Not only that, but he’s an acupuncturist, too. Nothing like putting someone who believes in pseudoscience in charge of science and technology. I wonder how that will work out.
Now, for Harper’s next appointment, let’s have an astrologer in charge of aerospace policy!
