Culture cuts deal blow to digitization strategy

Michael Geist writes in the Toronto Star about what recent cuts to culture programs means to Canada's digital information strategy:

These program cuts seemingly guarantee Canada will fall further behind the digitization race, leaving Canadians without online access to their cultural and historical heritage and doing precious little to promote Canadian content to the rest of the world. The decisions may provide short-term gains among some voting constituencies, but also promise long-term pain for Canada's presence in the online world.
