I was interested to read a new book, We Know What You're Thinking, by Darrell Bricker and John Wright of Ipsos Reid, Canada's largest market and opinion research company.

Here's how the chapter on British Columbia begins: "This is the place for local arts and culture. People agree emphatically that funding for the arts should not be left up to private business and foundations, but should get a boost from local governments. Ninety-one per cent of B.C. residents praise the selection of [arts and cultural] events and activities in their community, and it's the only region in Canada where there's complete agreement with the idea that a vibrant cultural scene is great for the local economy."
