This weekend Canadians learned that Daniel Caron, Conservative appointee to head Library and Archives Canada, our national archives, has adopted George Orwell's 1984 as its employee code of conduct.

The institution now demands that the librarians, archivists and historians that work at Canada's publicly funded archival institution must demonstrate "loyalty to the government and its elected officials", which extends "beyond the workplace to personal activities".

Questions by Andrew Cash (MP for Toronto-Davenport, in English) and Pierre Nantel (Longueuil--Pierre-Boucher, en français).
