'You're hiding the historical record from the Canadian people,' historian says
Historian Dennis Molinaro (Trent University) discovered that millions of pages of historical documents are being held by government departments in what he calls 'secret archives.' He's launched a petition to try to convince the government to make them public.
The Canadian Historical Association (CHA) has joined his campaign and is calling on the government to mark Canada's 150th anniversary by overhauling the laws on access to government records.
