Parliament Video: Jenny asks: Will you work together with us to fund arts and artist spaces?

On December 9th, 2019, Jenny rose and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, I noticed that one of the things not mentioned in the throne speech was the arts and culture community. In Vancouver East, we have a very vibrant community. In fact, we are one of the highest per capita in terms of artists in our community, and we are very proud of that.

However, one of the issues that we are faced with in our community, of course, is the space in which artists can thrive, and we are losing that space at a rapid rate. Therefore, in the spirit of a minority government, in the sprit of co-operation, I wonder if the member would be amenable to working with NDP members across the aisle to ensure that the government provides infrastructure dollars to secure those much-needed artist spaces so that the artists can continue to thrive and contribute to our economy as well."
