Conservatives introduce new program for culture: the video

I’ve been trying to stay away from the Government’s cuts in cultural programs, but yesterday’s Youtube release of a video by Quebec francophone artists is just too funny to ignore. It might also be an extremely effective way to rally people around the artists’ message. The viewing count is going up quite fast.

For those who haven’t seen it yet…

It’s untranslatable. Back in the 1970s, when Keith Spicer said you’d be missing out if you don’t learn French, this is what he was thinking about.

As a bonus, Patrick Lagacé’s column in this morning’s La Presse.

There’s a big show against the cuts in Montreal next week. Let’s see if it has any impact on the campaign.

SEPTEMBER 22 UPDATE: A version with rather creative English subtitles has been put online. Enjoy.
