According to VancouverFilm.Net , the September 2009, British Columbia provincial budget contains no new tax relief for the local film/TV industry, looking to increase BC's 35% labour-based tax credit.

The new budget was revealed as British Columbia currently faces the biggest provincial deficit in its history.

In recent weeks, the BC film/TV sector become increasingly agitated as the province began losing US projects to Ontario, including the recent move to Toronto of Vancouver-based Brightlight Pictures, noted for a string of Uwe Boll-directed features, setting-up shop in Ontario to lense a US service production remake of the 1962 UK TV series "The Saint", based on the works of author Leslie Charteris.
