Communications Coordinator, Access Copyright
I Value Canadian Stories coalition
December 2, 2017
Dear Mr. Gilbert:
The Editors' Association of Canada / Association canadienne des réviseurs (Editors Canada / Réviseurs Canada) would like to express our endorsement of Access Copyright’s "I Value Canadian Stories" coalition.
We agree with the coalition when it says that Canadian creators and publishers "enrich and elevate our lives and experiences to give us the fullest perspective of what it means to be Canadian."
We also agree that the federal government should restore fair compensation to creators and publishers when their work is used by those in the education sector.
We would like to join the other supporters of the I Value Canadian Stories coalition. I am attaching our logo for you to include on the web page of associations supporting this initiative.
President, Editors Canada
