On July 11, the AMM met with the Honourable Rochelle Squires, Minister of Sport, Culture and Heritage.
The AMM raised the issue of library funding and universal access with Minister Squires, noting the provincial library operating grant has remained stagnant for 12 years. The AMM requested increased provincial funding, as well as the implementation of a universal, province-wide library card system to increase efficiencies and promote library use.
The AMM also requested increased investment in local community museums to help promote tourism in Manitoba.
