OGS Toronto Branch stands up

The following is information from Gwyneth Pearce on behalf of OGS Toronto Branch.

At its annual general meeting on 28 May 2012, the Toronto Branch approved a resolution to send a letter to both the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages and the Prime Minister of Canada expressing our serious concerns about the cuts.

The letter, signed by Branch Chair Diana Thomson, urges the government of Canada to consider alternatives to the planned service reductions and elimination of programs at LAC so that Canada’s precious documentary and published heritage will be preserved and remain available for future generations.

The Toronto Branch letter and resolution are both posted at www.torontofamilyhistory.org.
