Does the Harper Government Really Care About Canadian History?

"Huge cache of Canadian history hits U.K. auction block, tests Library and Archives" is the headline of a Vancouver Sun article. It may well be seen as a test of the Harper Government's commitment to action as well as words when it comes to Canadian history.

Thanks to Brenda Dougall Merriman for the tip.

I hope you will follow this, and let us know the results of this auction.

Let's hope it at least goes to a public institution rather than a private collector so we will all have access somewhere. But my bets are not being placed on LAC acquiring them. My understanding is they have no acquisition budget and I don't see the Harper government caring one wit about some dusty old papers - unless they're Mike Duffy's expense claims!
