Dear Friends and Neighbours,


Recently there has been a lot of discussion in the neighbourhood, and at SRA meetings about film crews who come and work in our neighbourhood, but who do not give back to the community, even though they have promised to make a donation to the community through the Strathcona Community Centre Association.


Please note, that THE KILLING PRODUCTIONS has indeed followed through with this and that the SCCA has already received cheques from this production company for the days they have filmed here and will continue to do so.


Though it might be a temporary inconvenience, please be aware that filming in Strathcona is an important source of income to the SCCA and the SRA, and that THE KILLING PRODUCTION CO. is doing its best to be a good guest here. Your understanding is very much appreciated.
