In last Wednesday’s budget the Sask Party government announced its intention to cease funding for SCN (Saskatchewan Communications Network) as a cost-cutting measure in the wake of last year’s budget fiasco. As you can see from the adjacent poll, it’s developed into a bit of a hot-button issue with supporters championing SCN’s importance¬†to the Saskatchewan film and TV industry, and its role in helping tell Saskatchewan stories not only to provincial residents, but the rest of Canada and the world.

Wednesday at noon, a rally will be held in front of the CBC building on Broad Street to both thank SCN employees for all their hard work over the last two decades, and to protest the government’s decision, which comes at a particularly bad time for the once thriving¬†Saskatchewan film industry which is now virtually dormant.
