Guild set to fight for future of CBC/Radio-Canada at CRTC hearings

Canadian Media Guild (CMG) representatives are available for interviews and commentary on the CBC/Radio-Canada licence renewal hearings, which will begin at 9 a.m. on Monday, November 19 in Gatineau, QC. The Guild’s CBC/Radio-Canada Branch president, Marc-Philippe Laurin, and Staff representative Karen Wirsig will be in Gatineau.
The union is proposing a $65 million fund to support local and regional programming by public, provincial and community broadcasters across the country. The funding would come from a contribution by cable and satellite companies of 0.75% of gross revenues. CMG’s submission to the CRTC also argues for a plan to ensure the CBC/Radio-Canada reflects the “multicultural and multiracial nature of Canada.”
