According to today's Globe and Mail, a certain Mr. Cesar Saez has the plan........create a 300 foot banana, fill it with helium, and float it over the state of Texas in "a statement about advertising, sex, politics and illegal immigration"
So he applies to the Federally funded Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Quebec for cash money.
The Canada Council gives the guy $95,000.
The Quebec folks hand over $55,000.
Not enough. He wants $1.5 million.
All art funding done with our tax dollars needs to stop.
This is robbery, pure and simple.
