Apparently referring in part to the situation at the Soulpepper Theatre Company, the Canada Council for the Arts has issued a brief statement about sexual harassment and misconduct. (The statement is anodyne and not particularly illuminating for grant recipients including literary and cultural publishing:
"Following the wave of reports and allegations in the cultural sector and beyond, we reiterate that Canada Council for the Arts believes there is no place for harassment, sexual misconduct or abuse of power in any workplace. We’re currently reviewing our granting policies to ensure that there are adequate provisions which allow us to fairly and more effectively address situations which involve artists or organizations receiving Canada Council funding."
