VICTORIA — The provincial government should restore funding cuts in arts and education, says a committee of government and Opposition MLAs providing advice for the 2010 provincial budget.
The 10-member committee of Liberal and NDP politicians issued a report Friday with 49 recommendations for the B.C. government as it prepares for its 2010 budget in March.
They unanimously supported restoring funding for arts groups to last year’s level, before millions were cut from gaming grants and the B.C. Arts Council as part of cost-saving efforts in the September budget.
