I'm in the US, but I think this is horrible, too.  I hope that finance minister reconsiders.  A lot of people could lose their jobs.  I hadn't known that NS has a pretty good film & TV industry going.  You usually hear about Vancouver or Toronto when it comes to Canadian productions.  Anyway, a lot of people are upset about this.  Look at the #SaveSunnyvale tag on Twitter.

I am really worried, thousands are rallying against the decision made by the NS government, explaining why it is wrong but the premier refuses to listen.

We used to have tax incentives to film in Detroit & all kinds of stuff got shot here. Then Governor Snyder slashed them and a lot less stuff was shot here. We still had the AMC show Low Winter Sun, which unfortunately I am not too into as the characters aren't very strong. No wonder it wasn't brought back for a second season. I think the last Transformers movie shot some scenes here with the reduced incentives, but they like us as you're hard pressed to find ruins more epic than ours outside of the 3rd World or ancient cities. Now those Republican fucks have cut out the incentives altogether and it remains to be seen what, if anything will be shot here now.
   I really hope TPB can weather this. I mean, if Netflix can spend $90 million on Marco Polo and have nobody watch you would think they could keep a show as beloved as TPB going. I sure hope so. I think other Nova Scotian projects will probably be more likely to die off and struggle, sad to say.

So the government leaders are still not listening?  I have come to the conclusion that this generation of leaders in the world are the worst I have ever seen.  I am in the US & it's awful here too.  I think these leaders are only into it for the money & the power.  They are risking revolution if they don't knock it off.
