Re: Think of the children er I mean jobs

If US co's did try to hold that over the CAN gov'ts head, I'd bet the US co's would blink 1st.

It's common knowledge US outfits go to CAN to film due to significantly lower costs- I doubt they'd follow through on that threat since it would cost them real money, and not the ficticious losses from file trading.

I hope they make such a threat- it would prove their "losses" are really bogus.

Actually, with the Canadian dollar being generally worth more than the US dollar these days, not as much 'Hollywood' & US network production is taking pace in Canada as before. eg. X-Files was almost exclusively produced in Canada, but the economics of that are long past.
