Against muzzling research

Public-sector unions have organized rallies in a number of locations across the Ottawa area on Tuesday to protest the alleged muzzling of public scientists.
Have not heard to what extent the historians of Parks Canada and the museums or the archivists at the LAC are engaged in this.  It's hard science researchers who seem to get what coverage there is --mostly at the CBC, where journalists may be particularly sensitive to this kind of issue. But here's a shout out to all my friends in those historical sectors of the public service harrassed and muzzled by political staffers.
