  1. You're welcome, and thank you for being publicly engaged! The RMTS's report to its April 30 AGM said that in 2018 capital funds were spent on lobby-area roof repairs, replacing balcony carpets and drapes, a modern fire curtain, new usher jump-seats, more washers and dryers, a video projector and screen, hearing assist upgrades, and improved signage. The survey has been controversial — notably, the RMTS commissioned it only after getting pushback on the changes to the booking policy — but I do agree with the respondents who said that the theatres are well-maintained.


  2. Thank you for the kind comments. I'm not an accountant, so I can't speak to how the RMTS breaks down its financial statements, but it did state in its presentations to the three owner municipalities that it receives $580,000 annually from them, via the CRD — $480,000 for capital expenses, and $100,000 for its operating budget. See, for example, the second slide in its April 25 presentation to Victoria councillors, at https://pub-victoria.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=36544

    A part of the problem may be that this amount of funding has not increased since 1998, when it was established by a bylaw, posted at http://crd.ca.legistar.com/gateway.aspx?M=F&ID=05050a93-239c-43c6-ba73-4a584b165700.pdf. The RMTS is proud that it has not asked for an increase in this funding. Maybe it needs to be increased anyway ... and more municipalities need to pay for the services the theatres provide.
