In the news: More critics of CRTC decisions

Patricia Bailey of Playback reports on the CBC and Directors Guild of Canada reaction to the elimination of limits on ad time:

  • Critics slam CRTC policy
    “The NDP’s heritage critic Charlie Angus (Timmins-James Bay) believes the CRTC isn’t acting in the interest of Canadian viewers. ‘We’ve already got enough commercials on television. What’s in it for the Canadian viewer if they aren’t watching Canadian shows,’ he says. ‘Airwaves are public. These broadcasters make money because they are operating in a protected environment. Where’s the corresponding obligation to invest in Canadian television?'”
