Please sign the BC Film industry petition on Avaaz.org, here.
While a lot of supporters of the film industry here in British Columbia have signed the petition, I still encourage you to sign it. The BC Liberal government has been impervious on what they intend to due to provide competitive tax breaks for film production companies (they keep saying they’re going to do something about it but we still haven’t heard on what they plan on doing and we probably won’t until during the election or after election day and by then – it will be too late and thousands of British Columbians in the film industry will be without work). Your favourite show or movie that is filmed here spends a lot of money in both payroll taxes. Not to mention PST & GST soon since British Columbians were lame in voting against the HST.
They bring a lot of business to British Columbia and they generate revenue streams not to mention they employ a lot of people at a given time. Please take a few moments out of your day to sign.
