Shut Up, Trudeau
Seriously, as I asked before, what at the Liberals thinking?
What were they snorting or injecting when they decided that arts funding was an issue that would resonate with the public?
What were they dropping when they came up with the "figure" quoted by M. Trudeau, that supposedly the "arts" account for $85 Billion a year?
To put the absurdity of that number in perspective, in 2007 - in total - Hollywood's film revenues came to roughly $42 Billion, or about half of that.
Just shut up, Justin. You're an embarrassment even to your embarrassment of a family.

It's truly amazing watching CTV's Puffy Duffy fawning over young Trudeau the lucked out Pierre sperm, as if he had any real political significance in this country.
Geez, could we use some conservative media in this country!

Joe: you and I may be able to spot the flaws in his reasoning, but Liebrals cannot. They worship him like the new Messiah come to earth to smite the wicked. If only they knew he was the Son of the Devil. Remember the NEP!

Justin is such a fatuous thinker most people outside the realm of the liberal brain transplanted will see through him. Let him run - he'll eventually discredit everything he touches, though his inanity and his inability to stick with anything for more than five minutes.
He was a teacher at my children's school and was an embarrassment to all concerned then - a braying donkey with the sense of an ass.

Well we've figured out Justin pretty well but MSM is stuck on Stupid as can be witnessed by Duffy at CTV, and the rest at CBC and Global.

How did anybody get the figures that the Arts in Canada generates $ 85,000,000,000,.00 annually in associated revenues in the canadian economy> Thats a fib.
Total trade between Canada and the US is $ 50 Billion a tear.. and thats all our best stiff agrigated to the biggest trading zone on the planet : $ 50 B is the total receipts for all our cereals, oil seed, petroleum, minerals, forest products, electronics, and way way way way down the list right after exports of recycled toilet paper --- Canadian art
art is a businss, it is not a religious calling- and in Canada most art is manufactured at taxpaters expense by otherwise non viable sensory eletists who share their mental waste products in yet other elete venues- this is nothing more than state sponsered art with zero social application and zero matket value-
show me different

419- They're including every dollar that every Canadian spends on entertainment. Never mind that only about 1% of that entertainment is in the form of Canadian art, and that's only because of Canadian content rules.
