Opening the books in the House of Commons – New iPolitics Article by Dan

Dan has a new article in iPolitics about a NDP proposal for increasing the financial transparency of government. Take some time to read Dan’s article.

Beyond Politics with Dan Harris

Dan was interviewed by Catherine Clark  of CPAC’s Beyond Politics.   It is a very personal and enjoyable interview.

Austerity: the greatest bait-and-switch in history

Found this video on Boing Boing.   The article describes the speaker as “Mark Blyth, a delightfully sweary Scottish economist”.  Please be warned of two things 1) They were not kidding about the swearing and 2) It is an 1:07:30 long.  It is well worth you time.

The Canadian War Against Science

Found this blog post about the government’s war on science. It has a short 6 paragraph introduction and then lists the actions against science.  Printed, the whole article take about 6 pages. Read it and weep.

Canada needs to catch up on clean-tech

There is a new article by Dan Harris in iPolitics. This article, although it addresses the entire Clean Tech possibilities has a lot of information about the firm Electronic Recycling Services (ERS).  One of the best paragraphs is “…Sadly, the Conservative government is mired in the past, with its sole focus on extracting new resources from the ground. For Canada to achieve a balanced, sustainable economy we must concentrate on growing the value-added sectors. ..” Take a few minutes and read the article.

Crippling Canadian innovation in a cutthroat global marketplace

Dan’s weekly opinion piece in iPolitics  discusses the Conservative plans to slash the Scientific Research and Experimental Development  (SR&ED) budget.   “Apparently, overhauling innovation support means slashing SR&ED funding by $500-million per year. In other words, this is a 25 to 30 per cent reduction in R&D expenditures. This cut will hit innovation in all sectors of our economy and further erode Canada’s dismal ranking on business R&D spending.”
