Six of one, half a dozen of another


I'm betwixt and between after reading this news about Château Dufresne. While I recognize the absolute need to have art and cultural things in the most economically depressed neighborhood in Montreal, I do not like it when the government throws $65,000 willy-nilly at something under the guise of 'development.' Especially when the organization receiving the $65,000 thinks it is worth 87.5% of the Musee d'Art Contemporain (or even worse, apparently the fine folk at the Château Dufresne think they are worth 150% of the MACM if you are a student. Betcha if they dropped their admission prices attendance would skyrocket, and they wouldn't this extra special government handout to survive).
