I would never say a thing like that. I would not be able to make it back to Montreal, because Videotron people would have my hide at the provincial lines!
It is important to understand that specialty services, in the beginning... It is true that at the time, the idea was to help them launch their services, and that is why the fees were approved by the CRTC. Today, those fees are no longer approved; they are negotiated with the distributors. People seem to be saying that the fees are a godsend to the specialty channels, which received them 23 years ago, and that since that time nothing has changed. What hasn't changed is that we have never had an increase, but we have continued to negotiate our rates and have maintained them.
All businesses have seen their expenses increase over the past 26 years. They have had to spend more money for the same services, and that is also our case. People enjoy watching our shows, and that allows us to sell advertising.
If a more in-depth study is called for to determine whether or not to assist conventional broadcasters in the same way, then so be it.
