Canada brings down ax on TV, film funding [View all]

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118052073

"MONTREAL -- Canuck pubcaster CBC, federal film and TV funder Telefilm Canada and the National Film Board of Canada will all be subject to swingeing 10% budget cuts in the next three years.

The ax dropped Thursday as part of the national budget announced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservative government. "

OK, Canada, I ask this question with all due respect: what the Blazes is happening up there? Harper has at best 40 percent of the vote, yet he gets to pull crap like this and try to build the oilpipeline of ecological doom?

No, I am not trying to be snide, I was just surprised.
