The Canadian Library Association has released a Grassroots Advocacy Kit
to help members and other librarians lobby Members of Parliament on issues of concern as the proposed copyright reform bill goes to second reading next week in the House of Commons:
"This Copyright Advocacy Kit provides you with all the tools you need to contact your Member of Parliament and communicate our key points. The kit includes a list of 8 key messages, a sample form letter to your MP, a guide for holding an in-person meeting, and a link to find contact information for your MP. The kit also contains background information, including the latest CLA Position Statement Protecting the Public Interest in the Digital World: the views of the Canadian Library Association/Association canadienne des bibliothèques on Bill C-32, An Act to amend the Copyright Act."
