A Job Well Done?

From the Winnipeg Free Press:
Winnipeg is a cultural capital of Canada. The cultural businesses are the city's most impressive characteristic. That became apparent this summer when some of our offerings reached or came close to reaching world-class.
Leading that group is the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, taking shape at The Forks. There will be nothing else like it in the world. A few arguments have broken out about floor space, but they are endemic to exhibit developments. Some commentators worry the museum will be controversial. If it's not controversial, then it's not doing its job. One eastern writer worried if Winnipeg would have enough hotels to accommodate tourists.
Unless its "job" is to foment hostility between Jews and Ukrainians, I can't see how that's true.
