Something is Rotten in the Country of Canada

September 6, 2010 § Leave a comment

Seriously, there is something deeply and fundamentally flawed in this country.  According to The Globe & Mail, Ontario is making a push to become the centre of the digital entertainment industry in Canada.  That’s all fine and good until one realises that the industry is presently centred in Vancouver and Montréal.  So, basically, Toronto, backed by the provincial government, is now going to take on the other two major cities in the country, backed by their own provincial governments, in order to see who wins.  This is just wrong.

Certainly, the provinces have had flashpoints, economically speaking, including Québec’s infamous deal with Newfoundland for Churchill Falls.  But that deal was made because Newfoundland lacked the ability to harness the power of Churchill Falls.  Vancouver and Montréal, on the other hand, are already the centre of this industry.  What Toronto and Ontario are doing here is nothing short of cannibalisation.

Something is wrong, very wrong, in this country.
