History of the arts cuts: the death of the CCA

The Canadian Conference of the Arts, the bi-lingual, multi-cultural, non-partisan, national lobby and research institute on the arts, shuts its doors,  It was sixty-seven years old.

The CCA helped launch the Massey Commission on the Arts, the Canada Council, the National Library, and other cultural institutions.  Its leaders over the years included such luminaries as Alan Jarvis, Jean Bruch├ęsi, John Parkin, Pauline McGibbon, Lister Sinclair, and Jean-Louis Roux.

Another victim of the Government of Canada's cuts to arts and cultural institutions (except a few favorites).
