In a clearly worded statement released on July 13, Book Publishers Association of Alberta executive director Kieran Leblanc addressed the federal government directly about the problems that have been plaguing creative industries for the past decade and now threaten the viability of the Access Copyright: “We are at the end of the road, here. We need you to act. We need you to fix the Copyright Act immediately, before we reach a place of no return.”
