Canada’s Liberal government is prepared to overhaul the country’s laws governing broadcasting, media and cultural industries, with Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly announcing Saturday a public consultation on how to “strengthen the creation, discovery and export of Canadian content in a digital world.”
“Canada’s cultural and creative industries are important drivers of innovation and a vibrant part of our economy,” says Joly.
“As we adjust to the realities of rapid technological advances and changing consumer behaviour, I am launching consultations to better understand the challenges and opportunities brought on by this transformation.”
Happy days are here again for Canadian broadcasters (chiefly the CBC) now that The Natural Governing Party is back in office. And the CBC is not about to let a bunch of malcontent comment forum contributors spoil its party.
Let’s get started.
Quoting “Liberal Big Brother and Dear Leader Justin will decide what you can and should watch. Now “revenue streams” (formerly citizens) get filling out that Census Long Form and start (enjoying) your new life under C-51!!!” C-51 is exactly why I, as a lifetime conservative voter, disavowed and repudiated the Harper Regime. Obviously many conservatives fel the same way or Justin wouldn’t be our Dear Leader.
It’s pretty bad when the CBC has to resort to memory-holing history. But more than likely, ICUC’s censors are too stupid to understand.
Quoting “OH god more censorship from the all knowing liberals. Oct 2015 election was such a huge mistake.” The question is: who would go further when it comes to censorship and the unconstitutional clamp-down on our basic freedoms? The “Conservatives?” Or the Liberals? I voted NDP. And I’m a life-long conservative voter. One thing’s for sure. The censorship around this place (i.e. “content disabled” and “your comment is awaiting moderation) was ramped up big time on October 20, 2015

The Canada Revenue Agency’s long-dormant court action against accounting firm KPMG, which appeared to have been resurrected last September after media reports exposed delays in the case, won’t go to court anytime soon, CBC News has learned.
A judge first ordered KPMG in February 2013 to hand over to the CRA the names of all the multimillionaire Canadians caught using an offshore tax dodge set up by the accounting firm in the Isle of Man, a scheme the agency alleges was a “sham” and “intended to deceive” the treasury.
