Cost To Taxpayers For Human Rights Museum Reaches $160 000 000

[Times Colonist] The museum’s mandate is to create a centre of learning and history with a focus on human rights, both in Canada and abroad. Envisioned to be the largest centre of its type in the world, the museum will have a special focus on equipping and educating young people to become human rights leaders and advocates.

In addition to $105 million Asper wants to raise from the private sector — a goal she said she is within “a few million” of achieving — the facility has received $160 million from various levels of government.
