City Hall in Toronto is currently considering cutting funding to the City's major arts organizations (there is a Star article here). I am completely biased (since I used to work in the arts and have music and museum studies degrees), but I think that the arts are what make Toronto vibrant, progressive, and attractive to tourists and economic investment. I have signed THIS PETITION and urge you to consider doing the same. What is your take on municipal funding for the arts?
Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.
