Toronto Council must reject devastating cuts proposed by City Librarian (Canada)

City Council should reject a sweeping menu of service cuts proposed by Jane Pyper, the chief bureaucrat at the Toronto Public Library, because it will significantly diminish service and undermine what has been widely recognized as one of the best library systems in the world, according to the Toronto Public Library Workers Union. The proposed cuts, which in 2012 would amount to more than 10% of the TPL's current budget, will be considered on Monday by the Library Board, the majority of whose members were recently hand-picked by Mayor Ford. Ultimately, the proposed cuts must be accepted or rejected by City Council - CNW
