The Federal government is spending $10 million dollars of taxpayers' money to advertise Quebec's 400th anniversary.
The festival's budget, including the marketing and public relations dollars, are administered through the Societe de 400e anniversaire du Quebec, not through the federal government. Marketing efforts include advertising on Web sites and radio, and in magazines and newspapers. The $10-million is part of a total $40-million contribution by the Heritage department to the year-long celebrations, which mark the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City by Samuel de Champlain.I'm certain I would gain more pleasure setting the portion of my income devoted to the government on fire.
