I dunno, JimLad - myself, I was kinda insulted, not to mention astonished, to find out from his own lips that the Prime Minister thinks artists are rich fatcats with outlandish and unCanadian goals, which is pretty much what he said previously. I think asking him if Conservatives are barbarians was basically valid.

Some of the programs cut were particularly important to individual artists living outside major centres. What's the point in getting invited to show at a major gallery if neither you nor the gallery can afford to ship the artwork there and back?

"I think when ordinary working people come home, turn on the TV and see a gala of a bunch of people, you know, at a rich gala all subsidized by taxpayers claiming their subsidies aren't high enough when they know those subsidies have actually gone up - I'm not sure that's something that resonates with ordinary people," Harper said during a campaign stop in Saskatoon. - Harper

Harper dismissed the furor as "a niche issue for some."
