At the same time, it's important to state that a number of channels are currently seeking licence renewals. That clearly means that the business model one is associated with could imply a different distribution. People around this table may not know this, but for your information, a channel like TV5, which has 2.4 million subscribers in Quebec, actually has 4.4 million subscribers outside Quebec. So, this is a channel that is distributed in the majority of your ridings. It is important for Francophones who are a minority in their community, and because distributors might not be as concerned about a diversity of voices or the need to present French content, there is a danger that it will no longer be offered with basic cable if deregulation occurs.
