Comment for story on LAC Training Powerpoint
 
 Hello Mr. Melanson and Mr. Provencher, We are planning a follow-up story on the LAC's new code of conduct, based on the attached powerpoint presentation. I am wondering if you would comment on the the need for the two-hour training sessions and how much the sessions are costingtaxpayers in terms of employee time/salaries. Could you also tell mewho is conducting the training sessions. We would also like to include comment from the LAC on the rationalefor section 4.4.2 in the code, which has many people concerned. Whyhave invitations to teach or be a guest at conferences as a personalactivity or part-time employment been identified as "high risk to LACand to the employee with regard to conflict of interest, conflict of dutiesand duty of loyalty." Have there been problems with teaching and talkson personal time by LAC staff in the past? If so, could you providespecifics. Observers such as Loryl MacDonald, President of the Association of Canadian Archivists,say the new code also appears to suggestLAC librarians and archivists can no longer work or interact on personal time with academics or archival associations that receivefunding or lobby the LAC. Why is this provision needed?Is the LAC considering withdrawing or revising the code in light of thethe concerns that have been expressed?Could you get back to me by mid-afternoon Tuesday. I need to file mystory by 3 pm EST.Appreciate your help,
