Canadian Library Association Federal Election Kit

The Canadian Library Association has launched a Federal Election Kit.

It summarizes nine key library issues and provides suggestions on how librarians, trustees and others can reach out to candidates to make them take these issues seriously.

The issues are:
  • copyright reform
  • library postal rates
  • sales tax on reading materials
  • library services for Canadians with print disabilities
  • Community Access Program (government funding to provide access to the Internet)
  • exclusion of libraries and archives from federal infrastructure funding
  • funding for libraries through Library and Archives Canada
  • national literacy initiatives
  • net neutrality
