Premier responds to librarians' G20 concerns PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 August 2010


Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has responded to the British Columbia Library Association (BCLA) acknowledging their submission on the G20 summit. While he doesn’t say much in the response, (indeed he fails to acknowledge any provincial responsibility); it is good that he at least acknowledged the letter that was sent from BCLA on July 16th.  BCLA had expressed concerns about "the unprecedented curtailment of civil liberties that took place in the June 2010 meeting of the G20 in Toronto" and they for a full public inquiry.  No doubt the Premier is wondering why he is hearing from a library association from BC and not the Canadian Library Association (CLA) itself (or for that matter the Ontario Library Association).

 

As I indicated in an earlier posting , CLA has so far remained silent on the issue even though its Advisory Committee on Intellectual Freedom had recommended issuing a statement of concern.
