Magazines and arts colleagues to campaign on Parliament Hill November 4

The Canadian Arts Coalition -- of which Magazines Canada is a member -- is planning a pre-budget briefing to the standing committee of finance in Ottawa on November 4. This is part of a "Day on the Hill"that will be focussed around two principal recommendations to the government (which may be of particular interest to smaller literary and cultural magazines):
  • To increase the base budget of the Canada Council for the Arts by an additional $30 million per year for each of the next four years; this would bring the base to $300 million by 2015 and
  •  To invest $25 million in strategic international market access and development initiatives.
Meetings are expected between teams from the coalition and MPs, staff and departmental officials. That is, unless there is an election.
