Kelly Hill, may I introduce you to l'Observatoire de la culture et des communications?


Back in November Mr. Hill stated quite emphatically that
In Quebec, there were about 95,000 donors to arts and culture organizations in 2004. This represents 1.5% of the Quebec population, the lowest such percentage of all the regions of Canada. The 95,000 donors contributed about $27 million to arts and culture organizations in 2004.
Well, yesterday the Observatoire de la culture et des communications (aka the Quebec Government) released figures that stated private financing of museums in Quebec (aka donations) totaled $36 million, A difference of 33%, aka a very big discrepancy. This article in La Presse also points out that less than one tenth of one percent of the Quebec population volunteer at a museum.
