Heritage boondoggle in the making says Angus

An article on the NDP website includes:

OTTAWA – New Democrats are asking the Heritage Minister to explain what appears to be a backdoor process to give Conservative MPs first dibs on a proposed summer arts program. Charlie Angus (Timmins-James Bay) has obtained a memorandum from the minister’s office that is inviting Conservative MPs to come forward with ideas on how to spend a $30 million program slated for summer festivals. No criteria, applications or timelines have been posted by the Heritage Department with regards to this multi-million dollar fund.
