Thank you very much.
Welcome, everyone, to meeting number 18 of the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage. Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), we are doing a study on the evolution of the television industry in Canada and its impact on local communities. For the sake of time, I will introduce the three organizations that are before us as witnesses now, and I would ask the presenters to please introduce the people with them.
We have Astral Media Inc., Corus Entertainment Inc., and Telefilm Canada. I'll ask the folks from Astral Media to please make the first presentation.
