I'd like to propose that we actively pursue bringing a large international science project to Canada. Something similar to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. As a country we have the space and the energy. And, it will be a great incentive for our scientists, engineers technologists, etc. to stay here instead of looking for a more science friendly country to move to. It would also boost enrolment in the STEM fields in universities. Not to mention that for a relatively small investment, it would pump billions of international dollars and prestige into the country. The ILC https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Linear_Collider is a good example of something being developed that has yet to find a home. Canada, with its welcoming multi-cultural & multi-lingual society, natural resources, open spaces, modern transportation and data links would be a perfect location.
