I'm not exactly sure what a trade war between us and Britain
would consist of. I don't think we trade a lot of manufatured goods. Do we?

Oh well. As they say on South Park. Blame it on Canada we have big shoulders

tax credits and the UK. Not two things you hear in a sentence everyday.

I love the way the Uk hits on the game industry for years and then gets all up set when another country give them a good deal and they all go there.
Rather than answer with their own benefits to keep the companies, they try to make a legal move to stop Canada from giving these credits.

You do if your a farmer or on benefits
Seriously though they have tax credits for a dieing industry like farming where we don't have the climate to grow stuff efficiently why not have it for a growing industry like computer games where the government would have a profitable exports and get alot more back from income tax.

With masterpieces like Assassin's Creed from Ubisoft Montreal, Europe should be jealous

I like My city (montreal) we rock with almost always good games. Ubi soft MTL currently has ~1,400 employees and intends to reach 3,000 by 2012, So europe better get some powerful counter plan if they don't want to lose more people.
