The Honourable Kirsty Duncan: The 2018 budget is out, and our government has chosen science.

We are investing a total of $6.6 billion in science, researchers and the equipment they need to keep Canadian science world class.

It will be a great year for science!

We are supporting investigator-led research, targeting early-career scientists and, of course, promoting diversity in Canadian science.

We are doing this because we know that everything starts with science.

Science is far-reaching.

It leads to a stronger economy, middle-class jobs, healthier communities and a better tomorrow.
