Harper offers tax credit for the Arts
posted Sep. 29, 2008
The Conservative Leader Stephen Harper announced today that he would provide a $150-million tax credit to help get kids interested in the arts.
The credit will apply on up to $500 of eligible fees for children under 16 who participate in eligible arts activities such as music classes, drama or arts classes.
Although I, as I'm sure most of you weren't surprised by this announcement after Harper suggested "ordinary working Canadians didn't relate to elitist, tax-subsidized artists when they see them at gala events on television" last week.
It's definitely a step in the right direction. ;-)
