Sandy Shaw speaks out against cuts to Ancaster Arts Centre

Published on March 12, 2019

Local Hamilton West-Ancaster-Dundas NDP MPP Sandy Shaw is speaking out against Doug Ford’s $3-million cut to the Ancaster Arts Centre. Shaw released the following statement:


“The Ancaster Arts Centre would bolster arts and culture in the community, create jobs, and showcase all that downtown Ancaster has to offer. It would give downtown businesses a boost and bring even more people into Ancaster each year. Families have already put time and money behind this project, coming together to raise millions. Rather than work alongside Ancaster families and get this project built, these cuts pull the rug out from under them.


This government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to meddle in Hydro One and giving cash handouts to close political allies while telling Ancaster families that they’re not a priority. We deserve so much better. I am going to push back against this government's  callous cuts to Ancaster at Queen’s Park.”
