Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I would like to make a comment.
None of you has any services in Quebec. I note that to a certain degree, your concerns and problems are different from those of the Quebec television industry. I am astonished to hear that presenting Canadian content is a burden. In Quebec, this is not a burden, quite the contrary. The polls that Mr. Neal mentioned would be entirely different. Mr. Neal said that Canadians say that they want Canadian television, but they do not watch it.
In Quebec, the situation is entirely the opposite: our public is watching Quebec television. We love Quebec productions and we always want more of them. The audience ratings are very high, not only for private television, but also for Société Radio-Canada. I can tell you now that the Société Radio-Canada has huge importance. We, in Quebec, would not want to change it and we would not want to oblige it to broadcast only Canadian or only Quebec content. We want a varied content and we find that Radio-Canada is raising the general level of debate and information. We need Radio-Canada. To me, it seems simply impossible, unrealistic to deregulate and to ask Radio-Canada to present only Canadian content.
You said that you do not want any more regulations. I have some questions about this. For instance, Air Canada must offer service in French. It offers the service, but not sufficiently. However, I have never been able to speak to someone who speaks French at WestJet. I think that if television was deregulated, it would be all over, there would not be any Canadian content on television at all. In contrast, things would be different in Quebec.
Let me conclude—
