Our plan is to set up structures that respect the choices of communities. For a community of 5,000 residents that brings together perhaps four or five municipalities such as the Qu'Appelle River valley in Saskatchewan, the idea is not for community media to become big MAtvs and to dilute local news, but rather for the communities to take charge and, if they wish, their community television and radio stations can work together. We don't want to impose anything. We want community media to agree on what they want and that, in a region such as Vaudreuil-Soulanges, they can partner up. If the neighbouring region wants to be separate, that's fine too.
