Thus, the publication of the complaint and attendant publicity, prior to Friends of Science Society receiving any official notice of such action, appear to violate the nature and intent of Competition Bureau work, and to unfairly and publicly make damaging allegations against Friends of Science Society and other parties named in the document, which are not founded on investigative outcomes.
According to the Canadian Charter of Rights:
Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
· (a ) freedom of conscience and religion;
· (b ) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
· (c ) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
· (d ) freedom of association.
“Speaking for Friends of Science Society, we do not know what public benefit there is to a charity attempting to publicly denigrate a group of scientists and citizens who are expressing scientific information to the larger public. This would appear to go against the very essence of the Canadian Charter of Rights, the principles of scientific inquiry and public debate,” said Michelle Stirling, Communications Manager for Friends of Science Society, noting that climate change measures in the EU and UK have severely damaged those economies and put millions of people into heat or eat poverty. “We await any formal notice from the Competition Bureau.”
Friends of Science Society has spent a decade reviewing a broad spectrum of literature on climate change and have concluded the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2). Friends of Science is made up of a core group of earth, atmospheric, solar scientists, engineers, as well as citizens who challenge the catastrophic view of climate change.
