Congrats, H! Well deserved, timely and long overdue. Don't spend it all in one store.
Thanks Trav. Yup long overdue.
Here is a summary of some MAC hydrology research near Whitehorse.
Excellent news, congrats!
Great to hear (and good to see that there's at least one country in the world that's interested in putting money into this sort of thing).
Thanks Blair. The water related natural disasters in Canada in the last few years are hard for the public to ignore. The proposal was very well written. I'm a co-lead on the water and ecosystems theme. There are four other themes in the project.
On the environment front there was also a huge funding announcement for oceanography out of Dalhousie,
some energy projects out of Alberta and mining out of Laurentian. Add in the astrophysics and numerous medical projects and the total investment was $900M.
Wow, great news. Congrats!
Great news! And great work!! Congrats!!
