    It does not send enough of them back. These boats that are hitting our shores every day should be towed out to see before they can step foot in Europe

    ay ridiculous these people have any power in our societies; clearly positivist philosophy has yet to triumph over idiocy.

    I wanted to argue against that. But I see I can't because I only have out-of-date information. Up to date information:

    The Canadian War on Science: Updates to the chronology of the Conservative government’s anti-science actions

    Harper’s attack on science: No science, no evidence, no truth, no democracy

    I looked into emigrating to Canada a few years ago but they wouldn't have me. I'm now glad they didn't!

    Australia:
    Denying climate change,
    Dumping sediment on the great Barrier Reef,
    Cutting science and research funding significantly
    Denying entry to academics

    Canada:
    Denying climate change
    Banning researchers who work in environmental research from talking to the press about their work
    Cutting all environmental researcher jobs not linked to the fossil fuels industry and forcing them out of the country
    Major cuts to science research funding
    Eliminating any research that might bring to light evidence that goes against industrial development
    Reducing Environment Canada's engagement with the media by 80%
    Putting surveillance on the fisheries and natural resources department
    Denying scientists access to data on pollution and natural hazards
    Scrapped most of their LiDAR stations

    I could go on.

    I always wanted to work in Australia or Canada but these days if I went to the country I'd be put on some high surveillance watch list simply for working in the environmental sector. Terrifying.

    Yeah I work in environmental research, I don't think I would be allowed into the country these days. I always wanted to emigrate to Vancouver but now I never can

    You know last year they had the highest rate of deforestation of any country in the world?
