Those who work in the B.C. film industry say the loss of productions to Ontario and Quebec is killing their jobs, and more than 15,000 people have signed a online petition calling for the government to step in.
Premier Christy Clark has responded, outlining tax credits the province already provides, but stopped short of announcing any further tax breaks for the industry.
B.C. Almanac is hosting a live chat on this issue today. We want to know:
- How can the B.C. film industry stay competitive?
- Should the provincial government step in with better incentives?
Please share your thoughts with us below!
Story producer Jeremy Allingham will be moderating the discussion from 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m. PT today.
