on June 13, 2017 - 9:03am

An article published in the Winnipeg Free Press on June 8th outlined new issues around Provincial funding for some of Winnipeg’s services, including public libraries. The information reported about Provincial funding for the Winnipeg Public Library system (WPL) was of some concern for MLA. Since its initial run, the article has been updated to indicate that the full funding for WPL is expected to be renewed. Additionally, MLA submitted a formal request to the Province for clarification about the funding - we have been assured that it was fully renewed for the 2017/18 fiscal year.
