I know that I'm straying very close to the off-topic neutral zone, but I
wanted to offer a related example. In the past twenty years the film
industry has grown enormously in British Columbia (from $12 million in
spending in 1978 to $994 million in 2002). Most of this money has come
from the States. Productions (X-Men 2, Insomnia, Santa Claus 2, no name
a few recent ones) have come north to take advantage of skilled crews
and a cheap dollar.

Governor Schwarzneggar (sp?) made much of this in his campaign, arguing
that Americans shouldn't be outsourcing their film production to Canada
(among other countries). DB.
