The Entertainment Spectre

Although Mags Canada does not display any “entertainment” magazines on its website, it does maintain an open slot for them (on one of its pages) in the double category of Visual Arts & Entertainment. This may be an unintended hangover from the Free Trade Talks, when the Americans were demanding the elimination of public support of culture on the grounds that such support constituted unfair competition to the American entertainment industry.

In the American argument, all of Culture is subsumed under Entertainment.
