Why are we giving money for this pro terrorist play?

I think we should stop most of this arts funding. Arts should be privately funded.. I particularly dislike funding this pro terrorist play. Private industry can fund what it likes, but we can protest their funding of a pro terrorist play.

David Akin has been nice enough to suplly the numbers we can call to express our opinion on funding pro jihadi plays.

So taxpayers $ 35k (Feds) Municipal $ 30k, Provincial 24.5k

A $ 100k donation from taxpayers?

This is pocket change in highlighting waste of taxpayers dollars for squeaky wheel.

Let's hope Rob Ford gets a chance to regain some sanity for the Toronto taxpayer.
