Vancouver gets all reactionary on Huang Yong Ping


In case you missed it over the weekend, the Vancouver Art Gallery acquiesced to the local SPCA, and removed all the insects from a piece of art by Huang Yong Ping (Globe & Mail, CBC). While I find it extremely troubling, what I find most interesting is how it makes Vancouver seem way more conservative than Minneapolis, and Massachusetts where the show has already been, and while they both might be blue states in general I always think that the anything in the United States is more conservative than anything here in Canada. Obviously I'm wrong.
