The Canadian Media Guild has filed a submission to the CRTC in response to the Commission’s call for comments on its proposed approach to all-news TV services.
The CMG’s key recommendations are that the CRTC should :
– clarify further the investment in newsgathering, coverage across Canada, and infrastructure that all-news TV services must meet in order to be classified as national news services
– commit to comprehensive news reporting on all news channels and to equitable treatment for new entrants as future applications for all-news services are presented
– state how any decision arising from this consultation will fit into the planned review of the television broadcast system expected this fall, and commit to review any decisions that conflict with the outcomes of the later proceeding
