Creation Science at SSHRC?

According to Panda's Thumb, Nature is reporting that SSHRC denied a research grant proposal on the grounds that "the committee felt there was inadequate justification for the assumption in the proposal that the theory of evolution, and not intelligent-design theory, was correct."

As I read this, I was immediately struck with panic. "But I thought Stockwell Day became Minister of Public Safety."

Sure enough, SSHRC apparently reports to the Minister of Industry, Maxime Bernier. Un avocat Québécois . So what's up with creationist infiltration of SSHRC?
