The announced cuts made the national news on television today, which is probably good news for librarians, but the cuts signal longer term trends which are not good news at all: "We've received our budget rules and of course, we are suffering additional, large budget compressions. The Lester B. Pearson School Board is now over $14 million in cuts this year and some of the targeted areas are in support staff which includes librarians," Stein Day said. The Pearson board serves English-speaking students just west of Montreal. See also CBC, CTV, CJAD, Global.
