Navdeep Bains & Others Flinging About Buckets of Money: The August 3rd, 2020 Age of Ingenuity

Everyone loves Navdeep Bains, Canada’s innovation minister, especially the innovation community which hungers for those countless semi-trailers full of cash he’s been giving out recently. 

We're going to look at that and we're also going to remember the time when we could ask government ministers hard questions and have a reasonable expectation of receiving an honest answer even for the difficult issues.
