Mr. Speaker, nothing could be further from the truth. We have a program. It is important to have events across the country, in other urban centres as well.
Perhaps the hon. member would like to instead cut funding from some of the programs that were funded in order to make up the difference, like the Festival de jazz or Juste pour rire. I am sure the hon. member is not suggesting that.
The fact of the matter is there is a limited amount of funds that is spread out across the country and that is what people expect of the government.
