Save the Saskatchewan Film Employment Tax Credit
The tax credit brings investments into the province:

- In 14 years $100 million of investments has generated $623 million in production revenue for the province.
- The film industry created 1200 jobs in 2009/10 alone.
- It's not money out, it's money in.
- Don't eliminate the SFETC!

"Every dollar of tax incentive for the film industry returned six dollars in economic activity," Steve Wells, Ph.D. & Clyde Posey, Ph.D.

I'm frpm Vancouver and I think it is wrong to discontinue anything that has to do with film in Saskatchewan.

A have province doesnt need to cut,programs supporting an industry that doesn't depend on a resource boom!

The CREDIT (not a grant) enables our artists to live and work in this province. If they can't make a living here, they will move away and not come back. Do you want a province with NO ARTISTS?
8507William Bartley
Please reconsider this decision. The benefits of the credit (it's not a grant)far outweigh the costs.

The easiest thing in the world to do is to convince a redneck that funding the arts is a waste of money. Try giving the facts about the tax credit - they don't lie.

Government wasn't subsidizing film it was giving a tax break. By killing the industry they will now get nothing at all not to mention the revenue from businesses and jobs that will be lost. Doesn't make sense.

I liked it better when Saskatchewan was a leader in the arts. This new proposed tax credit isn't helpful.

What a terrible action. Please reconsider; it's almost too late.

The artists and storytellers are the soul of our culture. The tax credit not only makes financial sense but it nurtures the vary soul of who we are as a country. Keep the industry strong.
