Living our culture celebration, I don't recall seeing anything in the local newspapers about any of the 4 legacy events that were held in 2008 to celebrate Nanaimo as the culture capital. $750,000 was given to Nanaimo parks recreation and culture for these events from the federal government.
The last event is to be held January 31st 2009 @ beban park social centre at a cost of $35 per person and enjoy the sounds of Disco funk extravaganza by Nanaimo's own Wunderbread. If you divide that $750,000 between the other 4 events that would be somewhere in the neighbourhood of $187,000 per event. I would like to hear from you, give me your input on what you know about this funding from the federal government. Where did the money go?
