Hi. I spent a summer working at ELA as an assistant tech. One of the biggest uses for ELA was to test the toxicity of various new fertilizers and chemicals before they could be brought to market. (it would shock you to know how low the bar was). No ELA means no real world testing of chemicals to find out if they wipe out entire species. Or worse, don't break down and stay in our drinking water. So, the Harper Conservatives close ELA, and big Agriculture and big Chemical are happy. Guess which party has the largest financial donations? This decision is just not about pure science vs applied science.
