The article discusses the reaction of Arthur Carty in the removal of the National Science Advisor position. Relative to this, Carty is said to be retiring in "dismay" that Canadians will be losing a mechanism for rendering credible, independent nonpartisan scientific advice when he leaves the post on March 31, 2008. In October 2007, Carty was informed that the 4-year-old office of the National Science Advisor would be terminated in favor of the Technology and Innovation Council, which is chaired by University of Ottawa Professor of Chemistry and former president of the Royal Society of Canda Howard Alper.
