While Montreal and Toronto experience an explosion in game development companies and jobs, thanks to tax breaks (and a successful and growing indie scene), the scene in Vancouver is less encouraging, with layoffs at Microsoft, Radical, EA, and more.

CTV summarizes the recent layoffs and company closures in the area in this video report, also speaking with BC minister of community, sport, and culture Bill Bennett to determine if a solution is forthcoming. "It's not an easy decision at a time when the province is trying to balance its budget," Bennett said. "Apparently Quebec and Ontario don't worry as much about that."

You can watch it or read the transcript on CTV's site.
