"From 1990 to 1999, Paul Marmet was assistant professor in the physics department of the University of Ottawa. He was a senior researcher at the Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics of the National Research Council of Canada, in Ottawa, from 1983 to 1990. From 1967 to 1982, he was director of the laboratory for Atomic and Molecular Physics at Laval University in Québec City.
A past president of the Canadian Association of Physicists (1981-1982), he also served as a member of the executive committee of the Atomic Energy Control Board of Canada from 1979 to 1984. Marmet was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1973 and was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1981. "
In May 1999, the head of the physics department came to Marmets office and said: Ce nest pas ton bureau que nous voulons, ton problème est que tu remets en question les principes fondamentaux de la physique. (We do not want your office, your problem is that you keep questioning the fundamental principles of physics.) Three months later, a letter was sent requiring Marmet's office to become unoccupied before the end of the month. Without research grant and being expelled from his office, Dr. Marmet continued his research alone at home.
