I have a lot of friends—Graham Greene, Billy Merasty, Glen Gould from Nova Scotia, and many actors from across Canada—who are indigenous and who are making a great living at it. I try to say to governments at all levels that we need to invest in the creative economy in order to have creative people be able to make a living at what they love and what they're good at—to tell our stories. What better way is there to tell our stories than through music and theatre and art and all of the above, right?
