In the news: Tentative deal ends ACTRA strike

From the Canadian Press:

  • Striking Canadian actors reach deal
    “ACTRA, which represents 21,000 members across Canada, said it made sure current productions such as “Deal or No Deal,” “Little Mosque on the Prairie” and the upcoming season of “Canadian Idol” were not affected by the dispute by signing special deals with individual producers. But the producers association complained that the strike significantly hurt potential projects, pointing to prospective U.S. movie deals that have been scuttled by the labour woes.”
