Ottawa Announces $10.7 Million Digital Media Project

The federal government has announced plans to spend over $10 million to establish a "Corridor for Advancing Canadian Digital Media" from Stratford to Kitchener.  Coming on the heels of the Nortel bankruptcy, this initiative reinforces the tech shift westward from Ottawa to Waterloo.  While tech leadership once resided with Nortel, JDS, Corel, Newbridge, and Cognos, the shift to RIM, Open Text, etc. has a direct effect on the location of future tech iniatives in Canada.
