As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, the arts are vital to Canada’s prosperity. They benefit our economy and support the high quality of life that all Canadians have come to expect and enjoy. Encouraging a vibrant arts sector will help build a better Canada.
As a lifelong supporter of the arts, I am calling for a national framework to help build Canada as an arts nation. I call this Arts, Business and National Purpose. I look forward to working with Canadians and my colleagues in Parliament to advocate for policies that will help our arts community meet its full potential.
