Why Quebec artists make my GTA lawn sign more important

Heritage Canada is a little upset at an article printed in Le Devoir on Monday claiming that the New Media fund is already dead and no longer receives any requests for assistance from producers.

So the Department issued this a quick press release today saying they haven't made up their minds yet.

Of course Heritage didn't react back in August when the Post first brought it up here and the Globe confirmed it here.

And what point are they trying to make here, elect us and we might decide to extend the program.

Methinks, the Tories might be giving up on getting those extra seats in Quebec if this is the best they can do in response to Le Devoir and the large Quebec artistic community.

There is incredible solidarity among creative folk.

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
