PLEASE VOTE TODAY! On Oct. 5th I was honoured to be asked to stand on the stage with a bunch of my fellow musicians, actors and writers while Tom Mulcair announced the NDP’s robust “Support for the Arts” platform which includes (among other things) restoring lost CBC funding, support for Telefilm, the NFB and income averaging for artists, which would be great for those welcome years when you happen to make more money than usual. My only disappointment was that with this announcement, in this room full of artists, the press did not ask a single question about the new arts platform. Unknowingly I created a bit of a stir on BuzzFeed. Here’s me in my now, somewhat famous outfit, proudly wearing my Jennifer Hollett NDP button. Don’t forget to VOTE!!!
