Moore discussed his recent midterm report on the initiative and the department’s national consultations on existing programs planned for this summer. Daniel Jean and Hubert Lussier, two senior officials from the Department of Canadian Heritage, also commented on topics including the department’s investment in cultural programs and recent budget cuts.
