Letters to the editor in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix and Regina Leader Post have addressed the recent cuts and their impact. Library officials have announced that the cuts will require the closure of the province’s inter-library loan system, while Education Minister Don Morgan has requested that the program continue without offering any funding to support the program despite the budget cuts.
