Let the rich pay for their gallery

Given the abysmal track record of governments at all levels to build and maintain sport/entertainment facilities, we should not allow them to contemplate tax-dollar funding for a new Vancouver Art Gallery.

Government has already so grossly overburdened us with debt, they can no longer afford to properly fund health care, education, child welfare and other necessities.

Let the super-rich tiny minority who seek a new venue to display their chosen luxury fund 100 per cent of the costs. Do not pass the bill onto the average taxpayers, particularly younger generations who cannot even afford to buy a modest home, given the burdens already imposed upon them by governments.
