Archivists’ On To Ottawa Trek Day of Action May 28

Posted on

To respond to the devastating cuts, archivists, librarians, and allies across the country have planned a day of action on May 28 dubbed the Archivists’ On to Ottawa Trek. The trek has been modeled after the famous On to Ottawa Trek of 1935, which saw workers from across the country descend on Ottawa to protest government mismanagement during the Great Depression.

The primary event will take place in Ottawa in and around Library and Archives Canada and Parliament Hill. Beginning at 11:00 am at Major’s Hill Park, the trek will include a funeral for archival funding in Canada. Other events will be taking place in Edmonton, Calgary, and Victoria.
