moved for leave to introduce Bill C-234, An Act to amend the Broadcasting Act (decisions and orders).
Mr. Speaker, this is the same private member's bill that I tabled in the last two Parliaments. The bill is quite simple.
This private member's bill would amend the Broadcasting Act to require that the decisions and orders of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission be made within six months after a public hearing.
Just last month the telecommunication policy review panel requested, under an executive summary on page 12, that the CRTC expedite any decision making policy.
