"La culture ne fera pas les frais du régime minceur"

Mme Hélène Scherrer, ministre du Patrimoine canadien, le 15 janvier 2004 - 2004/01/15

Ms Scherrer told the Canadian press that “culture will not bear the brunt of federal government cutbacks.” According to the minister, federal attention will no longer be focused on cultural activities and events, but rather on “using all cultural, multicultural, and cultural diversity activities to ensure that each citizen feels 100% Canadian. Investments in culture will be made from this perspective.” (Available in French only)
