Jane Buss, wow, she takes no crap…
“Halifaxâ€™s proposed new cultural plan suffered a stinging rebuke Tuesday from the head of the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia.
It was part of a shaky unveiling at city hall of the comprehensive document, 10 months in the making.
Regional councillors received a letter from federation executive director Jane Buss as they took their first serious look at a plan that calls for more art in public buildings, increased efforts to get local artists and musicians into schools and possibly a new performing-arts centre.
The letter, addressed to Mayor Peter Kelly, assaults the proposal as totally ‘bereft of imagination, vision or even common sense.'”
