My Open Letter to Jack Layton

Dear Jack, Congratulations. I just listened to your victory speech and as
you listed all the things you will fight for, I was waiting to hear "arts
and culture"...particularly since it was Harper's marked disdain for arts
and culture that cost him a majority.

I voted for you (yes, I am a constituent) because I think you can be a real
champion for the arts - many of us expect that of you. The first thing you
should do is jump on the proposal to double the Canada Council funding. That
would send a good message - one that would serve you well down the line.
Yours truly.... Brian Blain
