Canadian Government is 'muzzling its scientists'.

Prof Thomas Pedersen, a senior scientist at the University of Victoria, said he believed there was a political motive in some cases.

'The Prime Minister (Stephen Harper) is keen to keep control of the message, I think to ensure that the government won't be embarrassed by scientific findings of its scientists that run counter to sound environmental stewardship,' he said.

'I suspect the federal government would prefer that its scientist don't discuss research that points out just how serious the climate change challenge is.'
