The Canadian Magazine Fund?

First off, I've never heard of the Canadian Magazine Fund and I had to read it a couple times to ensure I wasn't hallucinating. As Cosh points out, the lengths to which bureaucrats will go to define what is a magazine -- a point system of all things -- are hilarious.

You didn't honestly believe that 70% of the magazines out there had enough paying readers to justify their existence, did you? ;)

My favourite part of this is when the business magazines have that little "we gratefully acknowledge the help of the Canadian Magazine Fund" inserted in their periodicals. There is nothing more inspirational than reading advice from people whose business model is predicated on a snout in the trough...
