Canada gets in the game with eye on education

VANCOUVER -- British Columbia has been a hotbed of Hollywood and TV production for years, but it also has quietly grown into one of the world's largest homes to video game development. To help bolster talent in the region, the Canadian government is working with such gamemakers as Electronic Arts, Disney Interactive, Vivendi Games and Radical, as well as Sun Microsystems and Microsoft, to create the world's first Digital Media program at the Great Northern Way Campus in Vancouver.
