Obfuscation From LAC

The Canadian Library Association (CLA) is losing patience with Library and Archives Canada management:

"CLA has been genuinely striving to engage with LAC management, to understand the changes taking place at the institution, and to provide constructive feedback on behalf of our members, through both direct communication and participation in the Pan-Canadian Documentary Heritage Network and its affiliated Round Table groups. We are discouraged that our attempts have been repeatedly met with ambiguous responses and a lack of clear direction, rather than specific, concrete answers to specific questions."
That's an extract from the latest letter from the CLA in an exchange available from their advocacy page. CLA seems now to be getting the message the archivists got last year which resulted in them withdrawing from the sham of a consultation network.
