A new newsletter is now available from the Coalition for Canadian Astronomy highlighting progress with the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), the Thirty-Metre Telescope and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA). [Ed. A cope was formerly available in the CASCA Astronomy News NOV 2006, which is no longer found].

The Coalition for Canadian Astronomy, formed in 2000, was created to secure new money from the Federal Government to fund the Long-Range Plan for Astronomy and Astrophysics. Made up of astronomers – both amateur and professional – universities and various industry members; the Coalition is an umbrella-like organization that encompasses all major non-governmental players in Canadian astronomy.
