The cultural sector congratulates Minister Fortin’s position on fiscal and regulatory fairness

The newly formed coalition that last week issued a Declaration on the sustainability of cultural expression in the digital era welcomes the statement by the Minister of Culture and Communications, Mr. Luc Fortin, that Quebec could act on its own accord if Ottawa does not intervene to ensure financial and regulatory equity for Canadian and non-Canadian Internet broadcasters.

The organizations that formed the coalition were very pleased that the Minister shares their concerns about the critical importance of fiscal and regulatory fairness between participants in the cultural sector.  The coalition shares the Minister’s position that nations must apply a consistent regulatory framework for all parties, including digital multinational corporations.
