Do the Canadians Respect the Arts More Than We Do in the US?

"The measure of a culture is its integration of the arts into everyday life." Anonymous

When I first read this on the wall of the Victoria International Airport in British Columbia, I thought it was spot on. But, on reflection, it's only one measure. There are so many others: how well the very young and the very old are treated, whether there is access to health care and education, and whether human rights are respected. However, I personally like this way to judge a society because life would be dreary and insupportable without the arts.
