The issue of CBC's mandate was raised many times during the public consultations we conducted. One of the benefits of our consultations was that we were able to take a holistic, as opposed to a narrow, look at all of the government policies, the applicable legislation, and the various levers of funding.
As I mentioned, if the Broadcasting Act, which includes the mandate of CBC/Radio-Canada, needs to be revised, we will do so. Of course, we must first study the whole issue to understand what the repercussions of the decision would be on the various stakeholders, in order to find the right answer. We must also take into account the importance of sustaining a healthy democracy, developing local content, supporting content creators, and having a culture export strategy that will have positive economic effects for the country.
