Excerpt from “Debates & Proceedings” –
1st Session – 27th Legislature of the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan
N.S. Vol. 54 – No. 24A Thursday, March 29, 2012
Ms. Chartier: Saskatoon Contacts, Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League Champions
Ms. Chartier: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I’m pleased to rise today to present a petition in support of the reinstatement of the film employment tax credit. The petition mentions the reality that the film employment credit is in fact money in rather than money out for our province, the reality that this industry has leveraged every dollar in the province to turn around and bring $6 into the province, Mr. Speaker.
So I’d like to read the prayer:
We, in the prayer that reads as follows, respectfully request that the Government of Saskatchewan continue to provide a tax incentive for film, video, and television employment to leverage investment, employment, and growth in the province’s film, video, and television sector.
This petition is signed by residents of Regina and Humboldt and
complements an online petition that was presented yesterday in part,
actually more than 7,000 signatures to the minister’s assistant
yesterday. And that petition is still growing strong, going strong,
With that, I so submit.
