I apologize, but I have to interrupt you because my time is being closely monitored.
According to those people, the model used in the past is no longer working. It is informative to hear from you today because, up until now, we have mostly heard from conventional broadcasters and cable distributors. Those two groups were on each other's cases all the time. We now have a different group, and we would like to get your perspective.
Almost everyone, except for cable distributors, have asked that a fee-for-carriage regime be adopted. Some have suggested that a fee-for-carriage system would be used by everyone, including TVA, CTV and even CBC/Radio-Canada. They said that, under those conditions, people could make their own choices and determine the services they want. Everyone would be on a level playing field, and there would no longer be any specific packages, as is the case today. What would be the consequences of such a regime?
If fee-for-carriage were given to CTV, CBC/Radio-Canada, TVA and others, should we provide clients with an opting-out mechanism, so that they can decide whether to pay for a certain channel or not?
