Ahhh…A New Canadian Arts Minister Who Likes Arts

Canada’s arts community is cheering the appointment of Liza Frulla as the country’s new Heritage Minister. Sho has – unlike the previous arts minister – a demonstrated interest in the arts. “The professional clout is there; the personal interest is there — a reference to Frulla’s own description of herself as a ‘culture vulture’ and her eclectic background as, for example, the first female reporter ever to be allowed into the Montreal Canadiens’ dressing room, the first woman of Italian heritage to be elected to the Quebec National Assembly, and later, the host of a popular Radio-Canada TV show called Liza.”
