The costs of making movies is far less in Canada than in Hollywood. This is why movie producers go North to make their movies.

It's the same reason CA businesses go to NV, WA, TX, and overseas to do business.
My father always told me that if I look for negative I will surely find it. Your statements are in deed not fact, but rather an argument that twists statistics for an extremist politic vision of a direction in which you believe you must see.

I was born in Pleasanton, CA in 1960 and consider myself very fortunate to grow up there. It was a middle class town, and it's largest employer was the Livermore Radiation Laboratory. I had great teachers, and a good education. At 18 after graduating I joined the Carpenters union and worked for 33 straight years until I retired this year at 52.

My view of California as I would fly over the Bay bridge into the city at 4:30 am to pick up materials was always awestruck. The bridge, the lights on the towers, and the people that are up and doing things at this time of day. It is the 7th largest economy in the world, and I was part of it for a time. People come to California for opportunity, and not too whine about its faults.

In theme with the thread: I'm here in Nevada now, because it's a place I always came to for vacation. I'm here because most things are cheaper, and no state income tax is part of it. I'm here, because I perceive Nevada to have a greater quality of life me, and my spouse at this time.

The writing is on the wall for CA. I'm not being negative, just a realist. CA is controlled by Democrats who are fully controlled by rapacious public sector unions who elect the Democrats who turn around and agree to lavish contracts that can never be fulfilled unless taxes on businesses and individuals become punitive. Sure, wonderful that retired public sector employees get $100-700k/year pensions, but that simply means higher taxes and less government services for everyone else. I can see why you bailed the state. You don't want to pay higher taxes so millions of retired workers can live in the lap of luxury at the expense of those sucker taxpayers.

The greedy public sector unions not having enough money for their own selfish means are intent on abolishing Prop 13 and further destroying CA's economy.

Add to that the welfare state where more people are Takers on welfare than actual Makers working for a living and the millions of illegals who come here, don't work and soak up welfare benefits to the tune of $21 billion a year.

Then combine all that with the environmental zealots and nanny-state Statists taking away CA individual's freedoms and piling on regulatory costs with their war on business and you have a perfect Socialist storm.

CA is heading on the highway to bankruptcy and collapse. Socialism always fails.

So if Nevada wants to recreate the perfect Socialist Utopia that is collapsing CA, enact the same economically ruinous laws that CA enacted. It will simply mean that fleeing individuals and businesses from CA will bypass NV for right to work and/or states with no income taxes that are business friendly.

We've been business friendly for a half century now, and company relocations, where art thou?
