Thank you to our MPP, Steve Clark, for the timely and detailed response last week in the NG Times concerning the inter-library loan service. It makes sense that the Canadian Postal Service would be able to move small packages such as books more efficiently than the previous SOLS van service. Last time I checked, the postal service could use the extra work and revenue. Also, the postal system would reduce the carbon footprint of the inter-library loan service. Maybe SOLS can show the public a cost comparison between the previous van service and the postal service? If it’s going to save the taxpayers of this province 75% of $1.3 million, then just do it.
I thank this government for doing the tough, but responsible, work to make our province financially sustainable, despite all the very vocal, and sometimes unfair, criticism.
