Canada’s Small Museums Are Dying In Slow Motion

Canada is in the midst of a museum-building boom. “But too often, say some in the museum community, this country’s approach to its museums is like that of fathers who sire kids all over town but neglect to properly support them. Canada’s heritage collections and sites are in chronic crisis. No one is actively trying to obliterate them in the way that the Taliban blew up the Bamiyan Buddhas; rather, neglect and underfunding threaten to accomplish the same result, in slow motion.”
