From the Canadian Press:
- Government renews cash to embattled TV fund amid industry standoff
” ‘Contributing relatively small amounts to the creation of independent programs is a sweet deal for the cable companies, [NDP Heritage Critic Charlie] Angus said. The television fund was set up ‘following massive deregulation that was allowed by the CRTC. They’re in protected markets – they’re not facing open competition from American cable giants across the border who would love to be able to get into our markets.’ “
