'No Science Please .... We're Conservatives'!

"Investment in scientific research performed by the federal public service has been "eroded" to the extent that some government labs rely on industry funding to "simply keep the lights on," says the union representing public service professionals. [...]
This year alone, ... Health Canada must fill 600 scientific positions, of which many are professional jobs dealing with regulatory roles requiring experienced mid-career professionals."

Federal scientists in 'full-blown' crisis

It should come as no surprise, I suppose, that those who reject science in favour of mythology, fairy tales, literal scriptural nonsense and climate change denial ALL seem to find a comfortable home in the Conservative Party. There is a word for those who chose to 'ignore' science ... that word is 'ignorant'!

Of course, since science clashes with religion, it gets the boot and dies of starvation and asphyxia.

Bush did the same thing in DC.

Monkey see, monkey do.

Of course the money saved could be used for other things like installing a throne room in number 24.

You couldn't be more accurate. When science clashes with idiotic belief structures and primitive political ideologies ... stupidity quite often wins out. At least that is the case with Canada's current government.

You forgot the added bonus that science also clashes with business. A big no no in the conservative world. Get rid of those pesky little science people and world would look so much greener wouldn't it.

If by 'greener' you are referring to cash and greenbacks!
