Oct. 19 Federal Election: M@M member and student publish article on Conservatives' "War on Science"

Submitted by Media@McGill on


Thanks to Media@McGill research funding, Professor Darin Barney (Media@McGill member) and Elyse Amend (AHCS grad student) collaborated on an article "Getting It Right: Canadian Conservatives and the “War on Science" in the Canadian Journal of Communication.

The CJC made the unusual decision to issue their article as an advance edition available free online.

"In the interests of democratic debate, we have gone online with an advance version of the article, to time it with the remaining days of the electoral discussion. Amend and Barney’s article is a timely and outstanding account of a hot topic, written with the calm of the very best policy scholarship."

Media@McGill is proud of their article and pleased to support the research leading to it, as part of its mission to lead public debate and inform public policy.
