You're gonna have some fun stuff to talk about in a few weeks when the BC Fin Min announces he's replacing their film tax credit with a grant system. Toronto will get a huge amount of that work, and it'll be interesting to see if TAAFI and animation artists in Toronto will celebrate the influx of work that the fall of the west coast will bring to Ontario, at least temporarily.
