The quiet attack on our public library
“We’re going to be outsourcing everything that is not nailed down”
Doug Ford – Feb 6, 2011
In place of the Fords’ wrecking ball approach to our public library, which failed because Torontonians forcefully and explicitly rejected it, a longer-term strategy of undermining our public library is at work.
New fees, fines and acquisition cuts are having their intended affect. The latest information we have about usage rates shows fewer people are using our public library. Without a renewed commitment, these trends are likely to continue making our public library an easier target for future attacks.
Isn’t it time City Hall valued our public library like we do?
