Whiner alert: who knew Harper was right?

As some of you may know, outgoing prime minister (i hope) of Canada Stephen Harper thinks that artists are whiners. As reported by the Canadian Press, Harper said:
I think when ordinary working people come home, turn on the TV and see ... a bunch of people, you know, at a rich gala all subsidized by the taxpayers, claiming their subsidies aren't high enough when they know those subsidies have actually gone up -- I'm not sure that's something that resonates with ordinary people. Ordinary people understand we have to live within a budget.
Well, Alon Nashman, a Toronto-based actor, has added his two cents. And what a two cents they are.
