Statement made on 11 March 2009 by Senator Sharon Carstairs (retired)

Hon. Sharon Carstairs:

Honourable senators, many millions of dollars have been spent trying to attract Canadian-educated scientists who have gone abroad because they did not have research opportunities in Canada. Over the last number of years, the centres of excellence and the research councils have attracted many of those Canadians back to our country.

Will the minister inform us of what incentives exist for those scientists to remain here while billions of dollars are granted to research laboratories south of the border? We are pulling funding out of theses labs.
