Is the CBC considered culture? Idea

Awesome, I know for a fact that corporate sposnsorship's will pick up the ball. If they don't, well it's not like culture and arts have any positive impact on society. Good job Steve, pat yourself on the back.

Hopefully some of those cuts go into more corporate tax breaks and a few dozen shiny new private jails. Things we can all aprreciate and enjoy.

I wonder how many applications out there get approved for funding?

From what I read in the article is that they aren't saying all funding is going to be stopped. He just said that groups shouldn't decide on setting up a festival and then banking on the government to fund X% of it. There's a lot of interested groups out there looking for funding. Perhaps ,yes, they are looking at this more like a bank would these days. Considering the financial state of North America, I'm not all that surprised.

The Cons have shown even with a minority government that they are willing to pull long held grants to certain cultural events and festivals.

I can only see that ramping up with a majority government. And quite frankly I agree.

Each successive government should not be held to the whims of previous governments decisions on which events to fund. LOTS dont get any funding at all, and obviously there are many that simply expect it.


They should not. They should continue to apply and hope they get picked up for a grant, but should not rely on the money and instead plan as if they dont have it.

Here's a woman that sits on a chair and squirms around.

She has received $1.2 M since 1998.

Krista Ericson holds her to task.

Ericson has had 4500 complaints (they get 2000 annually).

GO KRISTA!!!
