From Antonia Zerbisias of the Toronto Star:
- Shaw could kill TV fund
“That could mean that independent producers of programs such as Degrassi: The Next Generation, Trailer Park Boys, Little Mosque on the Prairie and most documentaries won’t have the financing they need.” She concludes that it might be time, however, to take a long, hard look at the fund.
From the Canadian Press:
- Videotron suspends contributions to Canadian Television Fund, wants review of fund
“We fully intend to continue being a leading contributor to the financing of Canadian production but we have decided to withhold our monthly contributions to the Canadian Television Fund until significant changes are made to its management and direction.”
