Arts and museum critics small minded

There has been some discussion about arts and community funding in St. Albert. In observing the debate, it would seem taxpayers are spending billions and billions on these endeavours (similar to what some cities are spending on hockey arenas).

Heaven forbid that we would spend modest sums on enriching our cultural lives rather than on building monuments for the use of concussion-delivering goons!

As long as penny-pinching politicians like Hughes and her skinflint followers are around, this city, this province, this country will always be insignificant as a world cultural destination.

I can only imagine how upset they must be with the Harper government’s spending millions on the War of 1812 commemorations and the plans for the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the 75th anniversary of the Second World War and the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.
