Multiculturalism has so fractured and eroded the market for Canadian arts and culture that apparently that community can no longer flourish, or perhaps even survive, without billions of dollars in handouts from federal, provincial and municipal governments and corporate donations.
So desperate has the situation become that
Desperate times indeed. Desperate measures are called for, and so we will force millions of middle-income Canadians to pay millions of dollars more in a new tax so we can pass it on to fund the creation of Canadian new media content.
How many more billions of dollars do we need to pour into our arts and culture industries before they'll be satisfied?
