CULC/CBUC Motion to create a new national organization

The following motion was moved at the Spring CULC/CBUC meeting in Winnipeg, on May 29, 2013.

In the interests of the print-disabled and visually impaired Canadians, the Canadian Urban Libraries Council (CULC/CBUC) strongly supports moving forward with a solution as proposed by the CULC Working Group in their Concept Paper, and empowers the Working Group to negotiate aspects of the solution to best meet shared service objectives

Mover: Paul Takala, Hamilton Public Library

Seconder: Edel Toner-Rogala, Burnaby Public Library
UNANIMOUS

We want to thank everyone who has raised this issue with their communities and their MPs. @Cqualtro has championed disability rights in the past and we're hoping she will help #RestoreAccesibleBookFunding now https:/ww.cbc.ca/news/politics/accessible-reading-funding-cut-1.5938122

It's #WorldBookDay and we should be celebrating. Instead we are fighting on behalf of 1 in 10 Canadians with print disabilities. Please RT to help us convince @CQualtro and @cafreeland not to cut $4 million in funding for #accessible books 3 million Canadians rely on. #cdnpoli
