Time for Mélanie Joly to show leadership

A government committed to a bold vision of making Canada’s heritage digitally accessible to all is a call issued by Michael Geist in an article Why Canada’s E-Library Is Barren: Slow going national digitization plan leaves virtual shelves empty in The Tyee.

Geist, the Canada Research Chair in internet and E-commerce Law at the University of Ottawa, expresses the frustrations of many at the slow progress being made in establishing a digital library for Canada. His article details how perceived obstacles can be overcome, and suggests the money can be found as a 150th birthday gift that will keep giving for years to come.

Indeed. We need to have a workable plan NOW, not in 25 years...
