The right word:
The Government of Canada is providing multi-year funding of $60,000 over the next two years ($30,000 in 2015–2016 and $30,000 in 2016–2017) through the Canada Arts Presentation Fund for the Chutzpah! Festival and its PLUS series. Wai Young, Member of Parliament (Vancouver South), announced this support today on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
If there is any word that describes the vote buying activities of the Canadian government Chutzpah! is certainly it.
