Towns lose out on reality TV series

Two Central Alberta communities in the running to host a reality TV show came up short. Both Penhold and Lacombe were shortlisted by Force Four Entertainment as potential communities to host Axe the Tax. The premise of the show being how would people spend the money they would typically pay in taxes directly on the services the taxes provide. Participants would be refunded their tax dollars, but would have to pay for services. Representatives from the production company toured the communities in January and had hoped to start filming in early March. In the end, the production company chose to film in Kentville, N.S.
