The signing of this petition by at least 15% of Saskatchewan voters will legally force the provincial government to hold a referendum asking this question:
Should the Government of Saskatchewan maintain provincial funding for public libraries in Saskatchewan at least at 2016 levels, indexed for inflation?
Unlike the municipal elections where referendum-gathering has a time limit, there is no time limit on when the signatures have to be gathered. The sooner the better, of course.
The instructions for signing the petition are specific and need to be followed so that the petition is legally binding. Details about how the original signed copies are to be collected are in the following instructions.
People can sign this petition AND the other petition (Save Sask Libraries).
