Federal Election Debates: Party leaders must commit to reinforcing our cultural sovereignty  

Montréal, October 6th 2019 – During the election debate organized by the TVA network last Wednesday, several party leaders promised to oblige large companies active on the Web to collect GST/HST and to pay a corporate tax or a tax on their gross incomes, if their parties were elected.

The Coalition for Culture and Media (CCM) considers this to be a step in the right direction in re-establishing fiscal fairness for Canadian companies. However, party leaders must also commit to establishing more concrete measures to protect and promote our culture and media in the digital era.
