The Mayor of Vancouver wants the provincial government to make immediate changes to keep film productions from leaving town.
Gregor Robertson says the provincial tax credit system needs to be adjusted to match those in other provinces.
Robertson has tabled a motion callng for a letter to be written to the premier and the prime minister on the issue.
"I have had some back and forth with the province over the last couple fo years and was able to speak with the leader of the opposition the other night because they've clearly signalled they want to do something but at this point we need to see action in the very near term."
Robertson says Vancouver will bear the brunt of the lost jobs and revenue if TV productions leave town.
