Another flurry of media releases yesterday, as federal MPs staged photo ops at research universities across Canada to announce more than $138 million in CIHR (Canadian Institutes of Health Research) funding grants for the University of New Brunswick at Fredericton ($920,000), University of Ottawa ($14 million), University of Toronto ($65 million), McMaster University ($13.4 million), University of Western Ontario ($10.4 million), Brandon University ($263,323), University of Alberta ($16.4 million), University of Calgary ($17.3 million), University of Lethbridge ($17,500), and University of Northern British Columbia ($17,500). Is there an election coming?
