Broadcasting, Telecommunications and Copyright Reform – Federal political parties must commit to acting quickly

Montreal, June 26, 2019 – In the wake of the publication this morning of the report by the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Framework Review Panel and two reports on the review of the Copyright Act, in May and earlier this month, the Coalition for Culture and Media (CCM) is calling on all federal political parties to take action.

As we approach the launch of the election campaign, politicians must recognize the urgency of the situation and commit to implementing the initial elements of the reforms necessary for the survival of Canadian culture and media companies, during the next 12 months. The government cannot wait any longer. It must restore fairness between Canadian and foreign companies.
