Gregor Robertson, the mayor of Vancouver, British Columbia, just issued a proclamation declaring February 12th, 2013 International Darwin Day:
WHEREAS The anniversary of Darwin’s birthday is an appropriate period on which to reflect and celebrate the importance of scientific advancement to all people;
WHEREAS The City of Vancouver is rightfully proud of its commitment to scientifically-based environmental awareness, appropriate technology, and progressive education.
Canada: America’s smarter younger sister.
