The Art Forum has picked up a news story regarding the Canadian Government, in which it has been reported that the Liberal Government will commit more than $1 billion in additional funding to arts and culture in Canada over the next five years. Nearly 30% of those funds will be earmarked for the Canada Council for the Arts. The grand total may come to $1.9 billion, once investment in museums and the CBC is included, reversing the trend of the previous government towards culling CBC spending.
