From the Georgia Straight, October 3, 2009. 

In a previous post, I mentioned that Housing and Social Development Minister Rich Coleman has become the de facto minister of arts and culture in the B.C. Liberal government.
That’s because it appears that all provincial funding for arts organizations in future years will come from gaming revenuesfor which Coleman is responsible.
People who lobby on behalf of the arts and those who protest cuts to the arts should keep this in mind because it appears as though Tourism, Culture and Arts Minister Kevin Krueger has become irrelevant to the funding of arts organizations.
