In 2017, then-Minister of Canadian Heritage, Melanie Joly, announced that Netflix would be spending $500 million over five years on films produced in Canada. It sounds like a lot of money—but where is that money actually going? Do we know how it’s being spent?

This past February, Netflix announced that they’re leasing office and studio space in Cinespace and Pinewood studios.

While there has been some coverage of Netflix’s recent moves into Canada, a lot of big questions remain unanswered. Today on Pull Quotes, we try to unpack some of these questions.
