Preserve the NS Film and Digital Media Tax Credits. No change without consultation!
This petition had 31,049 supporters
Last week, in a pre-budget speech the NS Minister of Finance threatened significant changes to the film and TV tax credit that could devastate the provincial screen industry. This is a community that is deeply entrenched in our province. It is part of our culture. And it is a competitive, vibrant, and successful industry that brings in millions of dollars in foreign investment, employs thousands of people, and is a key contributor to the economy of our province.
Imagine if we had no This Hour Has 22 Minutes, no Trailer Park Boys, no Hope for Wildlife, Book of Negros, Haven, Mr. D, Call Me Fitz, Heartbeat, Bo on the Go, Relative Happiness, Blackbird... Imagine all those jobs lost, all those companies gone, and all those dollars spent elsewhere.
Please support our film and television community by signing this petition. Let our leaders know that crippling the film and TV industry is not what we - the people of Nova Scotia - want.
