There is a question whether Government Subsidized Movie Productions enhance or detract from your use of the East and West Exchange in Winnipeg? 

In 2019 there were nearly 60 days of Movie production in the Exchange Districts closing streets, access to public and street parking, private parking lots and businesses.  The Manitoba Government (https://mbfilmmusic.ca/en/film/tax-credits ) provides financing up to 65% of the labour/production of these films.  Literally millions of dollars available for any single production.  

Hundreds of Manitobans benefit from work being paid in majority by the government and in minority by the productions.

While the quality of these movies can range regardless of budget many movies are blockbuster quality.

Residents and Business are provided anywhere between 2 and 30 days for closures and no compensation for loss of quiet enjoyment, parking or commercial pedestrian traffic.  Canada Post, FedEx, UPS and Purolator routinely postpone deliveries due to inaccessibility.

Local government is of the belief that all is well and that residents do not find productions disruptive, businesses flourish with the activity and the investment is generally positive.  

The foundation of the continuance of the proliferation of these movie productions is a belief not backed by any survey of significance.

As a resident in the Exchange with a business and employees that need parking and customers that need access I believe that the movie productions need to be limited in numbers and more inline with the local population.

As a resident and business owner with employees & customers that require parking I believe that the proliferation of film productions needs to be contained and the effects on the local population must be considered tantamount.  Please sign my petition.
