Since the federal election the oil barrel and the loonie have dropped to their lowest level in thirteen years. This puts Finance Minister Bill Morneau in a tough situation: deliver the promised growth spending or be fiscally prudent?
In this context, no promise can be taken for granted. That’s why the Canadian Arts Coalition asks all arts advocates to participate in the pre-budget consultation. There are several ways for you to stress the importance of delivering the promised funding to the arts: you can use a short online questionnaire, submit your comment via Facebook or talk to your MP about your priorities for the federal budget.
The Coalition sent a Pre-Budget Submission. You may refer it if you are looking for inspiration.
