There are many coincidences in life. Every day - in a world with billions of things happening - there are bound to be events that just seem to be related. There are also deliberate acts that seem to be coincidence.
As consumers of news it’s our job to read between the lines and decide for ourselves what’s coincidence and what’s deliberate.
Two things happened yesterday:
1) Hundreds of lab-coated scientists marched on Parliament Hill proclaiming the death of evidence (a nice play on the Death of Innocence because there really has been a change in Ottawa where facts and figures no longer play a role in policy formulation); and
2) The Harper government announced Health Canada would study the (already well-studied) health effects of living near wind turbines.
Was it a coincidence or was it deliberate? I suspect...
