Save Library & Archives Canada Movement Gaining Traction
Posted 03 November 2011
By Rick Roberts,   Biography & Archived Articles


Library and Archives Canada (LAC) in Ottawa has been quietly removing services, reducing staff and taking a "aggressive" approach with those attempting to help it retain its budget. This according to heritage groups, LAC employees, and individual Canadians who are becoming increasingly alarmed by what they see happening at our national library and archives.

The 66,000 member Canadian Association of University Teachers is ramping up its effort to bring this important issue to public attention citing LAC management being "defensive, aggressive and unhelpful" to Canadian Association of University Teachers' attempts to retain funding for Library and Archives Canada.

Plans to reduce LAC's budget by at least an additional 12 million dollars over the next three years guarantees continued cutbacks to the collection and supporting services. This, on top of the current government recently killing the long form census, sends a strong signal that we are in a period of time when Canada's historical record is in serious jeopardy.

The executive director of the Canadian Association of University Teachers, James Turk is quoted extensively in an article in the Ottawa Citizen today. It's well worth reading.

If you care about Canada's historical records, read up on this issue, decide how you feel about it, and then call, write and email your MP and let them know what you think.
