Questions again on Saskatchewan libraries were posed in the House Monday.
The Saskatchewan NDP are still continuing to express concern over a review being done on them.
In 2017, the province reversed nearly $5 million in cuts to libraries after widespread protests were held outside the constituency offices of many Saskatchewan MLA’s. After this, it was announced a review of the matter would be conducted.
Education critic Carla Beck noted it’s still unclear as to what the aim of the review actually is.
“Coupled with the last attempt by this government to change the role of our libraries, I think it all adds up to a reasonable amount of fear and skepticism.”
Minister of Education Gord Wyant noted among it’s goals is to map out the future of the province’s public libraries.
He noted the review, to ensure transparency, will be published and once that’s done, public consultations will be held.
“There’s certainly no predetermined results as far as this is concerned. We really want to hear from the stakeholders and we really want to hear from the public.”
