From the Writers Guild of Canada:
Canadian showrunners star in a new video that offers a rare glimpse into the talent and passion that go into creating the hit Canadian shows that thrill millions of fans in Canada and worldwide. From Murdoch Mysteries to Orphan Black to Rookie Blue to Degrassi, experience the excellence of Canadian TV:
Here’s the hard truth: without government policies most Canadian media would not exist. It’s crucial that Canadians understand that there is a choice to be made: support the production of Canadian shows or lose our stories. Use the CRTC’s “Let’s Talk TV” online discussion forum (available until Sept. 19) to tell the commission you care about your Canadian TV.
Great storytelling not only reflects who we are and but it dreams of who we could be,” says WGC president, Jill Golick. “TV is the medium of choice for most Canadians and that’s why we need quality, quantity, and diversity in our TV drama — so we can dream of all we can be.”
Watch Canadian TV Delivers, applaud and share the work of Canadian creators who tell the stories that surprise, inspire and entertain.
