    There are some outstanding exceptions, but I am not
    optimistic about our industry.

    Spanish cinema is based on government handouts so Spanish
    movies are the voice of the government because the
    government pays the bills.

    If anyone would care to sit through to the end credits of
    Canadian films, some bear the distinct acknowledgment to
    government agencies that hand out grants for their production.
    But I never thought the films represent "the voice of the
    government". Some of those films are seem risque in spots.

    Can't think of any particular film like that right now.

    IMO Canada has made some great movies. They also make terrible TV style series shows. :-)
