City grants: history museum got nice cut

Although the big news from the recent auditor general’s report was about Formula E, this piece in Metro finds other interesting items, such as the Pointe-à-Callière museum benefiting from a nice piece of the pie in 2016. A museum spokesperson says they don’t get federal or provincial help and they’ve been also doing a lot of work underground to open up the old sewer pipe to visitors. Also, the museum was set up for the 350th in 1992, so it stands to reason the city should continue to support it.

With some further details on groups getting municipal help but not providing any accounting of their books.
