The Council of Canadians Regina chapter rallied today against the provincial government cutting funding for public libraries by nearly $5 million.
CUPE activist Tria Donaldson writes, "Today we rallied for Saskatchewan libraries. Over 150 people came out on very short notice because libraries are more than brick and mortar. They are the hearts of our community. We are going to keep the pressure up on our politicians, and keep building awareness in our communities."
The provincial government of Premier Brad Wall delivered its budget on March 22.
