or, False Arguments Fuel Government Assistance to Canada's Entertainment Industry.

"The arts, entertainment and recreation industries combined for about 1% of the GDP produced by all service industries in 2012, so it's a great exaggeration to say that the entertainment industry makes a major contribution to Canada's economy."

The original Fraser Institute report here.

Cut that $1.6billion from the budget and force Canadian producers to make decent shows so they can compete. I haven't watched a Canadian TV show, other than HNIC, in years because even with a billion bucks from the govt they still suck!

Red Green doesn't suck. Neither did Corner Gas or SCTV and I heard good things about Vikings.. Geeeez. 4 shows since mid '70's. You're right, Canuck tv sucks.
