Saturday was a cold windy day in Saskatoon, but that didn't stop a group of around 50 people from gathering in Victoria Park for the second annual March for Science. They're raising awareness for the scientific community. However, many scientists kept out of the event.

March attendee Charlie Post said, "Let's not ignore science". "Results!" scoffed a scientist who did not wish to be named. "Moreover, while there is some reality in the crunch of funds, one must also consider how well these institutions have delivered". However, organisers say that compared to past year, the number of participants from the scientific community had risen. The rally and march are meant to serve as "a physical and symbolic show of the movement toward a future where science serves all", says a press release from the organizing committee. Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) Physics department faculty member Dr Umesh R Kadhane will deliver a lecture on 'Building a Scientific Young Mind: Why and How?'.

Participants in the march, which took place in cities across Canada and around the world, hope to promote the need for all levels of government to tackle policy making with a scientific and evidence based approach.
