Open up the Ontario Archives

Months ago we saluted the opening of the new Ontario Archives building in a built-for-the-purpose structure near York University.

Now we discover the familiar edifice complex: they build the fabulous new building... and haven't the funds to keep the place open. The new Archives works on civil service hours and researchers are no longer allowed even to have reading room access evenings and weekends.

The Global Gazette, Canada's online genealogy magazine, leads the campaign for better service.
