ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the lessons he got from his conversation with Roy MacGregor, a columnist for "Globe and Mail." He talks about how entertaining and thought -provoking the columnist was in telling his stories as well as in giving his views about the importance of the Canadian Library Association's (CLA) advocacy work. Furthermore, he hopes that CLA members and those in the information community will appreciate the organization's contribution in creating a better country.
