CRTC Sets Hearing On Minority Language Broadcasting
October 17, 2008 at 5:25 AM (PT)
The CRTC wants public input on broadcasting services offered to French- and English-language communities in a minority situation. A public hearing on the matter is set to start on JANUARY 13th, 2009 in GATINEAU.
The agency is looking for comments on the availability and quality of French- and English-language broadcasting services in French and English linguistic minority communities; the challenge of providing, in those communities, broadcasting services in both official languages and their availability across all broadcasting platforms and distribution systems; and measures to encourage and facilitate access to the widest range of broadcasting services in both official languages in French and English linguistic minority communities in CANADA.
Comments are due by NOVEMBER 20th, 2008.
