Harper Government Halts Research into Root Causes of Evil: Cancer Research Hardest Hit

“When you see this type of destructive disease, you do not sit around trying to rationalize it or make excuses for it or figure out its root causes,” Harper told reporters when asked about recent cuts to cancer research.

“You condemn it categorically, and to the extent you can deal with the ravages of cancer, you deal with them as harshly as possible.”

While Harper didn’t name Liberal leader Trudeau, his comments appeared aimed at Mr. Trudeau’s remarks about “root causes” made in a CBC interview that aired Tuesday evening.

On Wednesday, Trudeau’s comments were fodder for the government in the Commons as Conservative MP Stella Ambler called on the Liberal leader to provide clarification.

“There is no root cause. Cancer is just evil, pure and simple. There is no justification for the killing of innocent civilians,” Ambler said.
