Re: Film industry on brink of leaving (The News, Feb. 20).

The film industry pours about $2.5 million per year into our community.

We cannot stand by and watch this valuable asset leave our province and the many jobs that go with it.

If this industry leaves and the revenue that goes with it, that could cause a cut in essential programs or even an increase in taxes to make up for the shortfall.

A thank you to all the local businesses that allowed us to place our SaveBCFilm signs and posters on their properties and we look forward to your continued support in preserving our jobs.
