Dear Governor Schwarzenegger.

Fuck you and your Hollywood-centric rhetoric. Fuck your stated intentions to remove US film production from Vancouver on the basis of "returning needed jobs to California" when we in the Lower Mainland glean about one-fifteenth of what Hollywood makes every year. Fuck your attempt to pull Terminator 3 from production because of the location. Fuck your assertion that *our* lifeblood is somehow damaging your precious economy. Fuck your completely terrifying campaign. And most of all, fuck your creepy Public Smile. Stop that. >.<

We are just so screwed. Campbell's in cahoots with Klein, the dollar's gone up, and now this. Oi.

*ahem* Right. I was doing something else...

(No offense meant to any of my beloved Californians. I plead total ignorance of Californian politics. I just really hate this whole Arnold thing. ;)

Yeah, but the majority of the revenue *still* goes back to the U.S. Those numbers I quoted are relatively accurate, albeit a little optimistic. Hollywood made about 14.6 billion (American dollars) on movies last year - Vancouver made 1.3 (CAD). And Arnold claims they need to snatch back even that measly fraction, because, I assume, *he* didn't make enough money last year. I guess twenty million just doesn't go as far as it used to. >.

Twenty million *per* movie.

Non taxable too, no? Isn't that the way it goes in the States? Once you make over a half a million, you don't pay taxes?
