By exposing the trashing of reports, journals and other documents, Canada's public service union may have prevented even more from ending up in a landfill, Johanne Fillion, a spokesperson for the Professional Institute of Public Service (PIPSC), told National Observer this week.

After PIPSC issued a release in late August showing the holdings from a suddenly-closed federal government library tossed in a dumpster, Agriculture Canada has since boxed a large amount of material, Fillion said.

Staff at the Alberta-based Agriculture and Agri-Food Lethbridge Research Centre informed Fillion that boxes and boxes of books are sitting in the hallway of the centre, awaiting their fate.
