InFORM scientists participated in the March for Science on April 22nd across Canada, and across the globe. Tens of thousands of marchers in 600+ locations participated around the world to show their support of science and evidence based policy. Here at InFORM, we have seen the power of speculation and conspiracy while we report on measurements. Participating in the March was moving, but this is just a starting point to remind decision makers that basing policy on evidence is a sound way to govern. This week following the March is a week of action and the official March page has ideas to stay engaged.
Here are a few scenes that InFORM scientists saw as they participated in Marches in Victoria, Vancouver, Ottawa, Halifax, and even in the Celtic Sea aboard the British research vessel, RSS Discovery.

The levels are very low and shouldn’t harm people eating fish from the West Coast or swimming in the ocean, according to Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
