To the editor:

The Young Interpreter Programme at Upper Canada Village is enjoying its thir- tieth season.

Created in 1982, the pro- gramme offers an opportu- nity for 10-15-year-olds to interpret the life of 19th cen- tury children by being in- volved in demonstrations, role-playing and interpreta- tion of 19th century social history.

Tories turning backs on science?

in our water. They killed the mandatory long form cen- sus, depriving us of a clear picture and un- derstanding of the circumstances that Canadians face in their daily lives. Scores of federal scientists will no longer be monitoring and reporting to us about the environment that our children and grand- children will have to live in. I believe that to make good decisions you need good data. Yet Mr. Lauzon and the Conservatives are eroding that data, bit by bit. It leaves our government flying blind— and dangerously ill-equipped to protect the health and safety of Canadians.

To the editor:

This month scientists from all across Canada held a funeral march on Parlia- ment Hill for the “death of evidence.” They were protesting how MP Guy Lau- zon and his Conservative government are ignoring evidence in policy-making, cutting off funding to vital research and preventing government scientists from presenting evi- dence to the public. This normally reserved group was moved to noisy protest by a set of decisions of the Conservative government that shows disre- gard for the hard work that our scientists do to generate knowledge for the benefit of Canadians. The Conservatives are eliminating the Ex- perimental Lakes Area, which we have used for 40 years to protect us from poisons
