OTTAWA -- More than 3,000 Canadians have signed a petition asking
Heritage Minister James Moore to restore a subsidy for Manitoba's only
NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair tabled the petition in the House of Commons
Wednesday. It calls on Moore to correct a new formula for the Canadian
Periodical Fund, which inadvertently reduces the subsidy La Liberté
receives by $50,000 to $60,000 a year.
