Dave:

First you denounce "economic isolationism," and then you justify it.

No further comment.

: :
: : The idea of economic isolationism is so 40's that to hear it now seems really silent film.

: : :
: : Therefore, you should address the Canadian content policies of the Canadian Radio & Television Commission,

: :
: Canadian television is at least 85 % American. Explain that first. CRTC set up rules (that no one follows) for Canadian networks to run a minimum of Canadian programming so that Canadians could have something that looks like a culture. Absolute and total domination by US stations and programming. It doesn't fund at all but sets guidelines for CANADIAN networks. You do realize that American stations totally dominate Canada. Like you care.

: Telefilm Canada
: :

: Didn't read it did you Bob.

: "But in making the jump from the small screen to the big screen, Canadian filmmakers find themselves in a cinema market which has always been dominated by the United States. Barely one movie in 20 shown on Canadian screens is a Canadian movie."

: Thanks. You made ny point. Trouble is it is 1 movie in 80 in reality .

:
: , the Canada Council for the Arts,
: :

: And you don't have arts programs ? There is no funding for American programs here. Sorry.

: :the 1995 Film and Video Tax Credit Program,the Cultural Industries Development Fund, the Canada Television and Cable Production Fund, and
: :

:
: Outside of the tax credit program(which I have yet to see any statisics on ANYONE who got money top produce in Canada)(by the way , why is this from 95, 5 years ago?) the rest have to do with Canadian films. Of which as we know only one in 20 on Canadian screens. Even more we both know that is a lie. It is more like one in every 80.

: Now make a list of 10 Canadian films that made over 15 millions in the last ten years. Go ahead Bob.


: :the National Film Board of Canada.
: :

: Now you are into bullshit.
