    I wouldn’t bother applying unless you support a company that promotes free labour. Even after they were exposed, they continued to hire unpaid artist.

    It went under the radar because the supervisor there is a local professor at Seneca College. He’s been recruiting his current and past students to work for free. The unpaid intern isn’t as large as the first season but it’s still going on.
