Critical Issues Facing the Government of Canada

Critical Issues Facing the Government of Canada / Canadian Library Association.
Ottawa: Canadian Library Association Political Task Force, 2004.

"Whether we are talking about the major library systems in a Canadian city, the small, beautiful rural library branch, the happy school library, the major research library at a university, the technical library of a college, the proud library on a reserve, the hospital library for patients and medical pros, or a fresh law library in Canada’s newest territory Nunavut, we can clearly recognize that libraries support nearly everything we care about in Canada:
* Learning and schools for our whole lives
* Preparing children for their futures
* Medical care and good health and nutrition
* Peace order and good government
* Healthy and effective communities
* Entertainment, the arts and culture
* A great democracy
* A wonderful country."
