Q:Is there an organized approach to travel to Ottawa being planned - school bus for southwestern Ontario, etc.?
As of now, we have not heard about anyone planning large-scale transportation such as a bus. Since the Archivists’ On to Ottawa Trek is a grassroots movement, it is really up to individuals in each region to gather together and make things happen.
This is particularly true since due to all of the funding cuts (the reason for our protest!) no one really has any funds to contribute to sending people to Ottawa or other regional gatherings. If anyone puts together a plan for a van or school bus to help transport people (or even has room in their car), please let us know so we can help spread the word!
Let us know if you need transportation in order to attend an event, and where you are located. We will put you in touch with those that have offered room in their vehicles.
