Local $$ for foreign art

Foreign Art Disturbs Councillor
I too am a little disturbed by the City going State Side to find an artist.  

I understand that this American artist is being paid $60,000.00  What needs to be clarified for me, a lonely little taxpayer, is the $60,000.00.  Is this figure in Canadian or American funds?  

With the exchange rate the way it is, I have to ask, “what will the final cost REALLY be”?
