Dear Editor,

Regarding announced cuts by the Ford Conservative Government to Ontario Public Library Funding: As a Toronto Councillor, Doug Ford said he'd close public libraries in his ward "in a heartbeat". He told Margaret Atwood he would only listen to her opinion if she ran for Council and got elected. He then got publicly humiliated by Ms Atwood when she asked people to support the library workers union online petition in support of public libraries and received so much support it crashed the server.

These cuts will primarily hurt small public libraries and regional libraries in rural areas, especially First Nations band libraries which do not have municipal tax bases to fund public libraries as in urban areas. Where is our local MPP, when he should be opposing these cuts and defending the rights of his constituents to quality public library services?
