Ontario Culture Budget Gets A Bump Up

The province of Ontario is having budget problems like governments everywhere. But the new budget for culture is going up. “Estimates for the 2004-05 fiscal year, released this week, show that the Ontario government’s cultural program will involve expenditures of close to $150-million. That’s an increase of almost 7 per cent over last year, and the first substantive hike in culture funding in more than five years.”
