So the Standing Committee on Finance has recommended that all arts funding by the province be restored to the levels of 2008/09. Good. Now what? Rest assured that this is significant, but it is not over. Minister Krueger “gets it”, but is that enough? Nobody knows if Minister Coleman “gets it” since he refuses to meet with anyone. Funny, I thought that was his job.
I thought the Premier “got it”, and I hope these funding cuts are recognized as the big mistake that they are and he proves me right.
In any case, folks, the work is not yet done.
