But it also includes lighthouses and railway stations that may not be national historic sites. There are hundreds of lighthouses alone. Matching does not mean "double the funding". Somebody else pays for that other $1M.

I'm not saying it's a bad program, but it does not change what I said earlier about heritage buildings in Canada being relatively poorly taken care of given what is possible. This becomes really obvious even in parts of the US, let alone Western Europe.
