I think it's crucially important.
Many years ago a prominent left-wing politician, Hugh Segal, talked at my university about a universal basic income. I think the time has come to relook at that.
I think it addresses issues for people working in the arts, because there's always this vulnerability, and I think that's what my colleagues from Quebec were just referencing too. It isn't just COVID; there's a constant vulnerability in earnings and how we undervalue and underappreciate people who work in culture and the arts.
If there's a silver lining, maybe this allows us to re-examine the notion of the value of people who work in the arts culture industry. The time is now, when we have great opportunities.
You can see in Burnaby the number of sound stages that are being built. That's not by accident, and what I'm hearing is that we need more. If there is a way that the federal government can partner with the industry to build more, that is what we need.
If there are ways that we can tweak the tax credit to bring even more work.... I think there's a role for provinces and the federal government in terms of this insurance issue, which is crucially important for domestic producers. They need that in order to start back up again. Without it, it's going to be a very precarious restart.
