Katie Gibbs is one of the founding members of Evidence for Democracy, as well as one of the lead organizers for the 2012 action in Ottawa that saw thousands come out and support their call for a renewal of science and evidence based decision-making. Katie and others cry foul at what they and many other see as the muzzling of government scientists on a range of issues but particularly climate change, as well as politics and ideology taking over science and evidence as the main driver of public policy in this country. Katie joins our expert team of part-time correspondents this week, with her third overall appearance on the show!
