Chart offers clarity on B.C. Liberal arts cuts

Reprinted from The Georgia Straight, (virtually the only local media outlet consistently covering the near-elimination of all arts funding in BC):

Since the last provincial budget was announced on September 1, none of the B.C. Liberal cabinet ministers responsible for arts funding has returned calls from the Georgia Straight to discuss this issue.
Finance Minister Colin Hansen, Tourism, Culture and the Arts Minister Kevin Krueger, and Housing and Social Development Minister Rich Coleman have all gone into hiding.
Fortunately, the NDP Opposition has created a chart that paints a pretty good picture of arts funding in B.C.
The critic for the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and the Arts, Vancouver-West End NDP MLA Spencer Herbert, e-mailed it to the Straight today.
The next provincial budget is scheduled to be unveiled on March 2.
