As a University of Toronto alumnus, I got an email today celebrating the fact that, a few days ago, the federal government gave the university a $114 million medical grant to transform regenerative medicine. I want everyone to remember this grant because it is the largest received by U of T from any government. So, when you read or hear progressives complain that the Harper Government has shut down scientific research, provide this link to prove their lie.
Specifically, the U of T release states:
“The research grant, the largest in U of T’s history, is the first to be awarded under the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF), established by the federal government last year. Spread over seven years, the funding will allow U of T and its partners, which include the Hospital for Sick Children, the University Health Network, and Mount Sinai Hospital, to deliver a new program called Medicine by Design.” [My underlining.]
