This is a larger debate that goes well beyond the thread topic, considering that almost everything is funded in some way or another by subsidies or tax incentives (basically the same). If it weren't for tax incentives to business, we probably wouldn't have the corporate base to support the luxery suites in the MTS centre. In fact, when you consider tax incentives, this discussion about the entertainment tax and the arts becomes almost moot.
