One might question the hyperbole, particularly comments such as the Library is "light years away from conforming with Ottawa's new modern management initiative," that it "is in the dark ages when it comes to implementing basic principles of modern comptrollership," and that the report "caused shock waves throughout the organization." But in this letter I would like to clarify the misunderstanding of the nature of, and timeframe for, the initiative.
