WINNIPEG — The Manitoba government is making its tax credit for film and video productions permanent and hinting at more help for the industry despite a consultant’s report that called for a reduction.
The tax credit, touted by the province as one of the biggest in Canada, was to expire at the end of this year. But it has proven effective in attracting projects and jobs, Culture Minister Cathy Cox said Tuesday.
BEIJING — China shot back at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday in expressing “strong dissatisfaction” with his criticism of a death sentence handed down to an alleged Canadian drug smuggler, while also cautioning its citizens about travelling to Canada.
Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Tuesday that Trudeau should “respect the rule of law, respect China’s judicial sovereignty, correct mistakes and stop making irresponsible remarks.”
