More Mandryk On Wall’s Film Flub

There’s another worthwhile column from the Leader-Post’s politics pundit in today’s paper. Murray Mandryk’s short breakdown on a film industry’s benefit to jobs and small businesses is a must-read:

For example, Sonja Clifton-Remple from Swift Current was eager to get out of this province until she discovered 15 years ago she could pursue a career in costume design here. As the costume designer for the TV series Insecurity, Clifton-Remple said she purchased $100,000 worth of clothing, locally, for this show alone. The movie Just Friends, also dropped about $100,000 on clothing, locally, and even a small movie like the yet-to-be released zombie horror flick 13 Eerie bought $14,000 worth of clothes here.

The whole column is here.

One thought on “More Mandryk On Wall’s Film Flub”

  1. As much as I disagree with the cut, I do appreciate the amount of information and dialogue on the positive spinoffs of the arts on the rest of the business community, in the media and by the public.
