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.’ “

I would love to know the opinions of your readers regarding Bev Oda’s attitude towards this incident, and whether they think the fund will be around for another year?
There’s some good discussion here and here.
