CLA Advocacy Call to Action
Posted by CLA Govt Library and Info Mgmt Professionals Network on 2012/01/12
Time to make good on that new year’s resolution to spend more time with your Member of Parliament! MPs are still on Christmas break, and will be in their ridings for the rest of this month. So this is your chance to set up a meeting and discuss some key issues for libraries.
There are two bills currently in progress through the House of Commons: C-11 on Copyright and C-321 on Library Book Rate. Both of these will be debated further in parliament in February.
CLA has prepared updated toolkits on both of these issues to help you have a productive meeting with your MP.
If you have a meeting, let us know! Send an email to me with feedback on your conversation. This will help us to prepare for follow-ups when the MPs get back to Ottawa.
Thanks for being an advocate for Canada’s libraries.
