OTTAWA-GATINEAU, Aug. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today launched an online discussion forum for Canadians to have their final say on the future of the television system. The forum will be open until September 19 – the final day of the public hearing on Let's Talk TV: A Conversation with Canadians.
To help focus comments, the CRTC has also published a working document for discussion that outlines some of the issues to be considered during the public hearing. Canadians are invited to share their views on the issues raised in this document.
The CRTC is seeking to ensure that the television system fosters choice and flexibility in selecting channels, encourages the creation of compelling and diverse programs and empowers Canadians to make informed choices and have recourse in the case of disputes with their television service providers.
"The Let's Talk TV conversation is all about ensuring that the television system is able to adapt to changing technologies and viewing habits in the coming years. We encourage Canadians not to miss out on this opportunity to influence the final outcome and help shape the future of television in Canada. After all, it's their television system. The only way we can make sure it meets their needs is if they participate."
Jean-Pierre Blais, CRTC Chairman
