In February 2007, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) established a task force to examine the funding and administration of the Canadian Television Fund (CTF). The task force issued its final report in June 2007. In a series of hearings, the CRTC considers the public response to the task force’s recommendations.
In this February 7, 2008, session in Gatineau, Que., representatives from Shaw Communications Inc., Star Choice Communications Inc., Quebecor Media, TVA Group, and Quebecor Inc. address recommendations outlined in the Task Force report.
Presentations are heard from Ken Stein (senior vice-president of corporate and regulatory affairs at Shaw Communications Inc.), Cynthia Rathwell (vice-president of regulatory affairs and programming at Star Choice Communications Inc.), and Pierre Karl Péladeau (vice-chairman of the board and CEO of Quebecor Media), among others.
