Divers-Cite, whose artistic director defended the government two weeks ago, has its latest funding request denied.

The Conservative government has rejected a bid for funding by a major arts festival geared toward gays and lesbians. The directors of Divers-Cite in Montreal say they were told by federal bureaucrats that their funding request met all the criteria, and the final approval was with Industry Minister Tony Clement.

On Monday, they were told the government simply decided against their particular request under the Marquee Tourism Events Program.
