The press release says "The total project budget is $163,000. The Government of Ontario has contributed $70,920 through the Creative Communities Prosperity Fund. The remaining funds will be contributed by the City"

How does that leave the impression that the Province is paying for the whole amount? Did you even read it? I'm not sure how they could make it any clearer as to how much the City is paying.

I wish the City would stop buying powerpoint presentations that try to quantify culture.

This money would be better invested directly into local arts organizations to make them even more successful.

Thumbs up to Geoff.

geoff (and K.),

The original press release did not include any financial details. The entire paragraph about the program's cost and where the money is coming from was added by the city after we posted this item.
The original version only indicated the program is "funded by the Government of Ontario."

That's what I thought, too. It seems pretty sneaky to make an edit without marking it as such.

No money for free Internet service for the poor people, but lots of cash for culture.

In addition to culture, we can add - (useless)Bike Signs, A gift to Terry Bradshaw who probably does not have a clue how to pronounce the City name let alone know where it is, and wasted time and energy on Heritage Districts.

Oh by Golly
Another Farbridge Folly!!
One goof, two goofs
Three goofs, Four
C,mon Karen
More, More, More!

I sometimes wish we would get rid of the current farbridge administration...


in before someone defends Farbridge

geo - the city had nothing to do with pulling the funding for library internet (and the library is culture), the bike signs were voted out, the Terry Bradshaw video was worth the money.

Serious Cynic - I'm not even going to respond to your ignorance
