This government was elected on a platform to fix health care, but they always have to keep other aspects of the province running.
They have invested more than $7 million of new money in the film industry (which is fabulous) but that doesn't help the arts and culture organizations, so there is a will to invest other than in health care - we need to help the Premier embrace what the arts and culture can do for NS.
Investment in Arts and Culture has significant and documented positive health impacts, it is a driving or economic development, social cohesion and a recruitment tool for new immigrants including health care workers.
It is a promise to our future as a vibrant, modern society, and one that can keep our young creative thinkers at home.
