Uh oh...

Here we go again.

Crofford will examine a range of issues from the role the music industry can play in fostering and promoting Saskatchewan's identity, to how to increase investment and expand production with respect to improving the industry's growth and opportunities. Crofford will be consulting with musicians, industry representatives, venues, provincial organizations and other stakeholders. Interim recommendations as a result of the examination will be completed by November 2006, with final recommendations provided to the Minister of Culture, Youth and Recreation by June of 2007.

A state-run music industry. Why not? I say we promptly put Theresa Sokyrka on the government payroll.

Culture subsidies have killed european film, music, you name it. The explanation is simple, if you get paid by the government you no longer produce entertainment for the public, but rather politically correct rubbish, that will keep the sunsidies flowing.

Why on earth is there a ministerial position for "culture" anyway? When did it become the job of the government to dictate "Saskatchewan's identity"?
