Ford government claws back money from the Ontario Arts Council.
About 10 years ago, Ontario's Culture Ministry announced a $5 million funding boost to the budget of the Ontario Arts Council. It brought the government's annual support of the OAC to about $60 million.
This week, the Conservative government cut funding to the OAC by $5 million, dropping the base funding for 2018-19 to $65 million.
In addition. after barely a year in existence, the goverment has slashed in half the Indigenous Culture Fund from $5 million to $2.75 million in 2018-19.
