In the news: CRTC decisions on ad time, carriage fees

Grant Robertson and Keith McArthur of the Globe and Mail report on recent decisions by the CRTC:

  • CRTC bows out of ad controls
    “The CRTC said broadcasters will be permitted to sell 14 minutes of commercials during prime time – up from 12 – for the start of the 2007-2008 television season. The cap will be eliminated two years later.”
