Comments on Canadian call for OA to publicly-funded research

Last October, Library and Archives Canada released its Canadian Digital Information Strategy for public comment.  The draft called for "timely and open online access to Canada's public information and publicly-funded research information and data."

LAC has now released the public comments.  (Thanks to Heather Morrison.)  Unfortunately, there's no summary, at least not yet.  Without reading each response, or making a Google co-op search engine to index the collection, we won't be able to tell what they say about the call for OA to publicly-funded research.
