Detaxation of cultural products and services
Resolution #108 : Detaxation of cultural products and services (Official French version)
A Government of the Conservative Party of Quebec will abolish the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, a duplication of the Canada Council for the Arts, and use the funds so saved to broaden the QST exemption already granted for books to the other following Québec cultural products: -cover charges for museums, interpretive centers, art galleries, and heritage sites. -tickets for shows, movies, circus, theater, and any other artistic event. -subscriptions to content broadcasters (Spotify, iTunes, Google play music, Netflix, Crave, Illico.tv, etc.). -Discs, DVDs and other multimedia sold on the Québec market. -Any other product or cultural service.
Thus, Quebeckers themselves, not civil servants, will get to choose the works of art that deserve their hard-earned money.
