So the deputy minister refused to give any details around the decision to cancel Trade Routes and the other arts programs cut last summer.

Let me take a wild guess. It's because the decision was completely politically motivated and the government lied about it being wasteful and ineffective?

The problem is that there is no recourse here that I can see. And what does that say about our government that these kinds of damaging decisions can be made and we're stuck with them?

They probably don't want to say that they cancelled the funding because 70% of the funding went to 5 Quebec companies that were run by avowed Separatists.
It has always been a conundrum to me that two groups of people, politicians and artists, who are supposed to excel at communication are really so poor at it.
