Council fails to grasp economic lessons

Funding money pits like the Port Theatre a waste of taxpayers' dollars.

To the Editor,

Re: Port Theatre’s new deal with city eases burden, April 7.

What’s really wrong with this picture?

During the Great Depression of the 1930s, no city would be giving any new funding to any public culture because they would be axed in favour of maintaining the basic public services.

But for some bizarre reason, today’s city of 2012 has clearly not learned the economic lesson, when they continue to waste the taxpayers’ money on funding money pits like the Port Theatre, which should get its funding from corporate Canada, which can afford it, unlike the burdened taxpayers.
