Ryan,

Come on! This is truly disheartening to read. The Inc. was approved Future Fund money - just like a whole lot of other organizations including Mohawk College. If this wasn't an artists' organization asking for funds early - I'm sure the story would be much different. From what I hear and I hope to receive a transcript - but some of the councilors were downright insulting to local artists. From what I understand Skydragon received some funds from Unions and other organizations to get their start. So saying they did it all on their own may be a bit misleading. I do give them tons of credit for what they are doing there though. The Future Fund was set up to spark projects in the community for the future good. As a business owner on James North - I only saw the Inc moving into that corner as a positive for the community and my business!

I guess this means same old same old at City Hall.
