Major Film Protest Planned For Toronto

“An estimated 100 trucks and trailers are expected to circle Queen’s Park in Toronto today as more than 5,000 workers in the Ontario film industry descend on the provincial legislature to demand increased tax credits to help revive the industry’s flagging fortunes… The demonstration — involving a united front of studios, unions, equipment suppliers and service companies called the Keep Ontario Cameras Rolling Coalition — is the latest step to pressure the Ontario government to raise the tax credit for domestic film and TV shoots to 33 per cent from 20 per cent and, most crucially, the credit for non-Canadian producers using Ontario labour, to 16 per cent from 11.”
