COC short at budget time, but we can all hear it on CBC

It's a strange season when you can completely sell out one of the largest opera houses in the country for an entire season and still come up short at your AGM but the COC has managed to find a way to do it. The company announced last night that they were $1.6 million in the red after projected individual donations to the tune of $1.1 million didn't materialize this year. They made up the money from a rainy day fund built up from previous years of surpluses.

It was also reported this week though that for the first time in 20 years the CBC will carry the whole COC season on radio and for the first time ever will have the broadcasts up on it's website for at least a year - yay!
