9 million bucks for dark matter research

SUDBURY, Ont. — The provincial government will spend more than $9 million to help Canadian and international researchers unlock one of the universe’s great mysteries.

Ontario flushes 9 BILLION dollars a year on INTEREST charges, and we're handing out money for this?

I like science. I just don't think it's the government's job to fund research on obscure nuclear particles.

Talk about pork.
