Subject: [APLA] Letter to Liberal Leadership Candidates Re. LAC


The attached letter has been mailed to all 9 candidates for the Leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada. The letters ask each candidate to carefully consider how Library and Archives Canada (LAC) might fare under their leadership. The letter provides several questions for the candidates to consider, and provides them with an informative backgrounder that discusses the stated mission of LAC, and provides examples from other national libraries for comparison.


Many thanks to Past President Jocelyne Thompson and the members of the new Advocacy Interest Group for their hard work in developing the letter.


Lou Duggan - President
