First They Came For DFO's Libraries, Now They're Shutting Down Health Canada's.

The main Health Canada research library is being shut down, sending scientists scrambling.
Recently retired Health Canada pathologist, Rudi Mueller, put it this way, "I look at it as an insidious plan to discourage people from using libraries.  If you want to justify closing a library, you make access difficult and then you say it is hardly used."

Health Canada scientists sometimes use the library cards of university students in co-operative programs at the department.

Unsanctioned libraries have been created by science staff.

"One group moved its 250 feet of published materials to an employee's basement. When you need a book, you email 'Fred,' and 'Fred' brings the book in with him the next day," the consultant wrote in his report.

One of the problems Mueller couldn't work around was the disappearance of librarians who could help him in his search for scientific literature. The report said the number of in-house librarians went from 40 in 2007 to just six in April 2013.

"The librarian would sit down with me and specifically design the searches for what I needed," said Mueller.

"A librarian is far better at doing a literature search than I am," added Mueller. "It's their profession."

James Turk, executive director of the Canadian Association of University Teachers, sympathized with Mueller's frustration.

"Knowledgeable and expert librarians and archivists are invaluable resources in helping you find what you want," he said.

"So they [Health Canada] are not just closing physical collections of books. They are getting rid of the guides to those collections."

Maybe we won't need all that medical research once Harper has us reduced to living in sod huts and caves.

Harper is a Neo-Nazi from his, Northern Foundation of 1989. Harper had even hired Wolfgang Droege and his Heritage Front as, security for Preston Manning. Droege was murdered in 2005. Conrad Black was a member of Harper's Northern Foundation of 1989. He kept the lid on things, so Harper could get his evil self into power.

Harper likely took a planeload of people with him. Likely to assist those countries set up their Union. We already have the European Union. Our Union will be the, North American Union.

Have people read of? Harper gives a speech in New York at the, Council of Foreign Relations. This was in Sept 25/2007.

Also don't forget. The 3 Amigo's have another meeting planned very shortly.

The North American Union.

Harper is also front man for, the New World Order. Harper had attended a Bilderberg meeting in 2003 I believe.

Harper's New World Order Canadian truths.

As much as we yelled, Harper is a snake in the grass. No-one would listen.

Fucker. He's a fascist barbarian, actively destroying any part of civilization that restrains him and his fellow looters from pillaging the rest.

Deb, his pathological approach to government is indeed scary.

PLG - "fascist barbarian" pretty much sums it up. Maybe Christo-fascist barbarian.

Harper is simply a 21st Century Neo-Con Christian Fundamentalist. I'm sure his brethren to the south are thrilled, but it's time to send him his pink slip.
