Minister of Industry (Canada) Appoints Members of Science, Technology and Innovation Council
It is good to see this advisory body -- promised in the Canadian government's science and technology strategy (Mobilizing Science and Technology to Canada's Advantage) released in May 2007 -- has now been created and appointments made. I hope that it will be effective in its activities. Now that it is in place, perhaps this body might lend some focus (and hopefully its support) to various national science activities, initiatives and proposals, such as the recommendations of the National Consultation on Access to Scientific Research Data (NCASRD).
