The Conservative Economic Action Plan at work - stimulating the mudbath industry.

Forget about funding a Montreal PRIDE gay and lesbian arts festival that brings millions of dollars in revenue to that city. The government of Canada prefers to spend their economic stimulus on stimulating a nordic spa startup industry:

The Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of Public Works and Government Services, today announced the awarding of $200,000 in repayable funding to Spa Le Montagnais under the Community Economic Diversification Initiative – Vitality to undertake the work necessary to establish a Nordic spa… The coexistence of a Nordic spa with other local attractions is bound to attract novelty-seeking visitors.

I think there’s a joke to be made somewhere here about shifting funding from PRIDE parades to bath houses. I could also make the point a PRIDE parade (edit: or related festival as noted above) is also bound to attract novelty-seeking visitors as well, with a lot more bang for the stimulus buck.
