Petition Drive

Save Saskatchewan Libraries has a legislative petition calling for immediately restoring funding for Saskatchewan libraries. These petitions will be submitted to the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan on a regular basis to keep this issue on the forefront of minds of our politicians. Each page needs three signatures, and can be submitted at any MLA office or mailed to 3731 E Eastgate Drive, REGINA SK, S4Z 1A5.

It is important to make sure that all of the information requested is provided by each person who signs. If it is not provided, their signature will not be counted.

It is also important that everyone who signs read the upper portion because, by signing, they are declaring they are legally eligible to do so.
