A Bean To Grind
Just finished reading the Best Of Food supplement in the latest prairie dog. It's hard for me to take the recommendations seriously when Reginans voted Tim's the best coffee in Regina.
There also seemed to be a heavy emphasis on drunkeness in the recommendations. The choices might have been different if they were made when sober. Alcohol can enhance the dining experience, but at what point does it become a hindrance?
Filmpocalypse 2012: The Wrong Direction
I'm from Saskatchewan, lived here my whole life. I paid my own way through school and got a job that I love to go to everyday.
Now I have a young family, own a home, own a truck, shop at the grocery stores and farmers markets, shop at other local businesses, go to restaurants, and go to Rider games when I can. I pay plenty of taxes on everything, including the income taxes coming off my cheque every two weeks. That's just the way it is.
That all being said, I doubt that anyone can logically say that my opinion doesn't matter too. To have the provincial government cripple an industry by removing a tax credit program that is a direct incentive for outside investment coming into the province really feels like the wrong direction to be going in.
The film industry in this province is yet another great thing that Saskatchewan can be proud of and should continue to be proud of. The role it plays in creating quality jobs and helping to drive the economy is undeniable. Real tax-paying, working families will be forced to leave a province they have supported and have been proud to call home.
These skilled, long-time residents truly want to remain in this province and feel the future for their families is here.
I continue to hope that the provincial government will work effectively with representatives of the film and video industry and create a new plan that ensures ongoing success for the industry and the people of our province.
