From The Globe and Mail:
The federal government plans to name Toronto a “cultural capital of Canada” and give the city $500,000 for that designation, effective this September through August, 2006.
I’m sure this should read THE cultural capital of Canada, not a. This sounds like quite an honor, but really, what other city was in the running? Saskatoon? I hope this won’t endanger our other titles – centre of the universe (former mayor Mel Lastman actually declared it that for a few days in 1999) and world-class city.
