Opposition Critic for Small Business, Tourism, Arts & Culture Lana Popham will raise the issue of government investment in arts and culture with Minister Coralee Oakes in this Thursday's budget estimate debate.
In a message sent to her mailing list this week, Popham invites questions and feedback from our sector about disbursement of provincial funds for arts and culture in advance of this budget estimates debate. Please send your questions and feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, as we've previously reported, Popham is calling for the creation of a Legislative Standing Committee on Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, and is seeking public support. The petition, which she intends to present in April, can be accessed here: http://tinyurl.com/artsculturecommittee.
