“Science communication means more than transmitting facts and scientific knowledge to Canadians. It means engaging people in the process of science, enabling citizens to make informed decisions as consumers and voters. I hope this type of engagement will empower people to critically evaluate stories and statements online before they click ‘like’ or ‘share’!” – Chantal Barriault, Co-director of the Science Communication program at Laurentian University.
