A disproportionate share of federal funding for celebrations of Canada Day and other national holidays was given to organizations in ridings held by Liberal MPs, according to an analysis done by the Ottawa Citizen.
A little more than 79 per cent of the $7.5 million provided since the last election through Canadian Heritage's Celebrate Canada program funded projects based in Liberal ridings, the newspaper says.
As well, projects based in Quebec received more than half of the total amount spent by the national program.
