Nova Scotia’s film folks continue to express their anguish over the Liberal government’s changes to this province’s tax credit system. A new website chronicles some of the industry professionals who have moved—or seem to be planning to move—elsewhere for work. So far there’s six. A crowdfunding campaign has also been set up to recoup the $200 set-up costs for the website (which presumably doesn’t fall under Nova Scotia’s digital media credit).
Black government leaders from across the country are meeting over the next three days in Birchtown to discuss the challenges faced by their communities in Canada.
Elsewhere, the LGBTQ Health Research conference will be taking place today and tomorrow at the University of King’s College, exploring the risks and strategies for the oft invisible health needs of non-cisgender communities.
