All of Canada’s 308 federal Members of Parliament are now being provided with a subscription to ACCN, the Canadian Chemical News, starting with the November/December 2012 issue. “It is critical that we continue to reach out to MPs and staff on Parliament Hill to impress upon them the important role that science and technology play in any advanced society,” says Cathleen Crudden, president of the CSC and chair of the Advocacy Task Force. “While programs such as [PAGSE’s] Bacon and Eggheads are absolutely essential in this regard, the CSC also plans to take on a stronger leadership role this year and in the future.”
