The day after the Progressive Conservative government tabled its first budget earlier this month, officials told the Canadian Independent Music Association that the Ontario Music Fund would be reduced from $15-million to $7-million.

The association's president said he had expected the fund would receive less money, given the government's aim of tackling the deficit.

"I wasn't surprised that the fund was going to receive a cut," Stuart Johnston said. "I was surprised by the depth of the cut. I think that took everybody by surprise."
