Ivan Semeniuk, The Globe and Mail


Dr. David Secko
514-848-2424 ext. 5175


While Canada accounts for a small fraction of the scientific research conducted worldwide, the even smaller fraction of specialized science media based in Canada means that the country’s research efforts are chronically underreported. Ivan Semeniuk, science reporter for The Globe and Mail, will review a collection of stories that range from the important to the entertaining and explore what they reveal about science and journalism in Canada.
