It wasn’t your usual protest group. More lab coats than jeans. More shirts and ties than hoodies.

Hundreds of scientists converged on Parliament Hill September 16 2013 to voice their concern and alarm over the state of public science in Canada. They see a proud profession, critical to the future of the country and the planet, as diminished, demeaned, neglected, scorned and relegated to the scrap heap of public policy. I went up to The Hill to capture on video the rally and the angry, eloquent words  of the speakers.
