It is lead up week to the Federal Election in Canada on May 2 and as usual the arts in Canada remain a largely neglected subject. It is amazing how difficult it can be to find out any information about each candidate's vision for the arts. That is why I am so grateful for the thoughtful people at Opera.ca who put together a very special advocacy edition of their monthly newsletter High Notes.
Their Federal Election Toolkit is full of resources that include links to party platforms, a social media primer and a guide to the questions we should be asking our candidates. You would usually require a membership to access Opera.ca and receive their mailings, but as they have encouraged the widespread circulation of their resources you can access them all here for free.
