Noted Canadian pollster and market researcher Nik Nanos has initiated a public effort to encourage the Government of Canada to restore funding for Canadian Studies around the world. These funds were abruptly terminated in May 2012 by the Government of Stephen Harper.
Nanos has enlisted a blue-ribbon Steering Committee to support this effort. Members include Margaret Atwood, Graeme Gibson, Jane Urquhart, Lawrence Hill, John English, Robert Bothwell, Margaret MacMillan, Laura Dawson, Alain-G. Gagnon, and Senator Peter Boehm.
