This industry is suffering badly due to the meager tax concessions offered by the BC Liberals, versus those provided in other parts of Canada. Our film studios are all but vacant, and the backlog of projects is quickly disappearing.
Our film industry has provided thousands of jobs in our economy for many years, yet the government of the day had chosen to donate $12 million of taxpayers’ money to a foreign entity, over our homegrown North American enterprise.
In return, it is reported that one Indian film will be made here, using local crews, in the coming year. This, out of hundreds of Indian films made every year in India.
What a pathetic return on our dollars donated.
When is this waste of money going to stop, and funds spent where they actually benefit B.C. taxpayers?
