Charlotte Gray wants Canada's history to be an election issue

A timely interview of Canada's leading biographer and historian. Charlotte Gray laments that Canada’s history has been sadly neglected and cuts to Library and Archives Canada have meant that preserving and accessing our shared past has become more challenging.

One of the points she makes is that digitization of historical materials in Canada is lagging.

By coincidence I found a blog post with the US National Archives and Records Administration List of Digitization Priorities based on a request for public input on June 15, 2015.

Where is Library and Archives Canada's list? Where is the process that would lead to it?
