Statement from Canadian Historical Association on Cutbacks to LAC and NADP

Attached is a letter from Lara Wilson, chair of the Canadian Council of Archives to Minister James Moore, with more information about National Archival Development Program. We urge you to read the recent statement published by CHA on their website and what, historically and culturally, the ramifications will be by the current cutbacks to LAC:

If you have not submitted your concerns via the CAUT save the LAC website (easy to do, takes only two minutes), please consider writing about your concerns and what it will mean to our colleagues and greater community (contact information has been posted on this blog in earlier posts). Silence tells our politicians that you agree with their decision – is this true?
