The article discusses the online petition launched by the Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre. It states that in hope to win the approval of the federal government to pony up over $500,000 annually to get a national license to access the Cochrane Library, the Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre established an online petition that urges Ottawa, Canada to open its vaults for a "Canadian subscription." This subscription will provide an access to this wealth of independently made health information for all Canadian citizens. The petition is accessible at www.ccnc.cochrane.org. It has already been signed by 2,000 Canadians and will be available online until May 8, 2008.
