It was initially announced that a portion of this money was going to be distributed to individual artists but now I'm not so sure. Actually, I'll be surprised to see what the actual dollar amount ends up to be, and if it goes anywhere but to institutions--perhaps that's just the pessimist in me! Maybe it has something to do with seeing the Heritage Minister, Sheila Copps, on the news this morning, stating that the recording industry needs money siting the careers of artists such as Shania Twain and Celine Dion (!) I'm always disappointed (yeah, I'm a dreamer) that the support of dance companies who have achieved international profiles (i.e., LaLaLa Human Steps) isn't mentioned. Ok, to be fair, she did say that the government needs to support Canadian artists in telling their stories to Canadians...<P>Murray Whyte - National Post, 03/05/01:<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Chrétien commits $560-million for the arts</B><BR>'Corporate welfare for the cultural industries,' critics say<P>Ottawa also pledged yesterday:<P>-$108-million to foster Canadian content on the Internet.<P>- $75-million over three years to the Canada Council for the Arts.<P>- $32-million to Canadian cultural exports and promoting Canadian artists abroad.<P>- $28-million for the book publishing industry and a similar amount for the recording industry.<P>- $13-million over three years for training centres such as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and the School of Toronto Dance Theatre.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><B>more...</B><P><p>[This message has been edited by Marie (edited May 03, 2001).]
