All about who offers the best tax deal to the companies. Once we did this with industry and everyone had money. Now we do it with anyone. Movie industry is the worst. Don't pay well and not regular but employs lots of part timers for short periods.

Because it is a clean industry if you ignore all the diesel generators and trucks they use.

No, Anna. This is good news. Any time an industry attracts jobs to our great nation, it is cause for celebration.

What's the catch? Canada is a shitty place to invest. How much is this costing us?

Free government money one way or another. To live in Vancouver requires at least $30/hr job@ 2 per household. I doubt google will pay anywhere near that.

Google would be attracted to a major center like Vancouver. Good luck getting work at Google that will pay well enough to cover rent.
