Brad Wall INSISTS On Driving Film Industy Jobs And Investment Out Of Saskatchewan Based On Pure Right Wing Ideology
There is only one reason that Wall is doing this. While the Saskatchewan Party was lost in the wasteland of Opposition, they fought the implementation of the province's Film Tax Credit tooth and claw. While the former New Democratic government was implementing a tax credit plan similar to what exists in 8 other provinces, the Sask Party ran around spouting the typical right wing rhetoric about 'subsidizing business' and 'picking winners and losers'.
There is no good reason for Mr Wall to dismantle Saskatchewan's Film Tax Credit ... other than he didn't support it at its implementation.
Brad Wall is driving companies, jobs and investment out of the province.
"What's likely worse is listening only to the philosophically petty or equally self-serving justifications that seem to be either driving or validating the Wall government's yet-to-be justified decision.
Even worse than that is the damage being done to the province's image. Really, is it not a problem when the major international stories emerging out of this province in the past week were the attempt by liquor and gaming inspectors to ban Chippendale dancers at a breast cancer fundraiser and the decision to become about the only jurisdiction in North American without a film tax credit? Is this the cosmopolitan "new Saskatchewan" that's trying to attract investors and foreign workers?"
