LAC nominated for the annual Canadian Association of Journalists’ Code of Silence Award

In the Wall Street Journal in New York , May 4, it was noted that the Library and Archives Canada was nominated by the Canadian Association of Journalists for its …”code of conduct that keeps staff members from speaking at conventions…” for the CODE OF SILENCE AWARD. http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130505-900007.html

Increasingly, we see that the terms public institution, freedom of speech, transparency, civic responsibilities and accountability are gaining new definitions in Canadian society. It is good to see that others are taking note of what is transpiring in Ottawa and by the politicians leading these new trends. If you haven’t yet signed the petition by CAUT on halting the destruction of the LAC, please do so now:
