One Response to Analyses of the Provincial and Territorial 2014-15 Budgets from the Perspective of Arts, Culture and Heritage

    I can’t believe that this coalition supports the bureaucracy that is Canada Council. This is an institution that only had 949 applications for first time applicants in this country awarded last year. This is an institution that only Quebec and Ontario receive huge amounts of funding while all of the western provinces combined dont come anywhere near these two Eastern provinces. CBC should manage and award arts funding since they at least have a pulse when it comes to arts in Canada and promoting artists and Canadian culture. I don’t know if most of your members are in Ontario and Quebec, but Canada Council is a bureaucratic nightmare for artists in western Canada.
