Due to tax incentives, it’s cheaper to film and create television shows in Canada than it is to create a show south of the border. This, then, leads to Vancouver posing as an amazing number of cities whether they be fictional or real. From what I’ve seen in television shows and movies, Vancouver has posed as the backdrop for New York, Boston, North Korea, and in this case, a fictional town in Maine called Storybrooke.
While out with a friend, we went to the local village to have lunch and we were met with the set pieces for a show created by an American television show. It sort of reminded me how Vancouver, with all its beauty, manages not to portray itself in prime time television. It always seems to be posing as some place else. It’s nothing to worry about, I suppose. It helps the local economy.
