Stephen Harper speaks on arts cuts

Here. From the article: "Mr. Harper flatly denied any ideological underpinnings...."

See, that's called lying. As I've mentioned before, the Conservative party's own leaked memo complained that "left-wing" artists were benefiting from the grants. Not that they were "political" or "right-wing" or "radical" or anything else. Just that they happened to espouse ideology that's opposed to conservatism.

So which is the lie? The internal memo leaked at the time, or the public statement a month later during an election campaign? Gee, I wonder.
