Primary Colours

Well, the writ has been dropped and we all go to the polls on May 28th, 2007. This should make for an interesting few weeks and we’ll be busy trying to keep the arts on the agenda.

One thing for sure is the difference in the level of interest in the Council and our thoughts on the arts. Let’s face it, this will be a battle between the two main parties the Liberals and the Conservatives. Sure the Liberals are raring to go and open to any ideas that might gain a few more votes – as a result their ears are open.

The Council must be non-partisan, and we’ve made efforts to present our plans and ideas to both sides, but, I gotta tell you that there seems to be a difference in how that information is received. Am I seeing “red”, well, let’s just say I’m not seeing much “blue”.
