Thanks to a GoFundMe campaign, haligonia.ca has embarked on a quest to find the truth hiding in all the rhetoric surrounding the Nova Scotia Film Tax Credit Cut. The Finance Department is saying that the $24M tax Credit returns only $6M to Nova Scotia.
In an industry that the government itself says is worth $139M annually, this does not compute. Now it seems like someone is ry to ‘spin’ the message. Suddenly the Premiere is calling the Tax Credit a “grant”. The Film Industry says that the Credit returns the 24M many times over. The trouble is, this is so complicated that most people believe the sound bites.
