Thank you, Madam Chair.
Thank you all for being here today. Moreover, I thank and commend you for the work you're doing to maintain balanced access to French and English media.
I want to address the guests from QCGN today.
Half of my family are Montrealers, and I know from lived experience that anglophone content is readily available there. I want to focus on that 16%, I think it was, of your target audience who live outside of Montreal, in many cases in rural and smaller communities, who also deserve access to English and locally relevant content, whether it be through traditional outlets or digital outlets.
I'll ask my question in three parts and invite you to apportion the time that remains in any way you'd like.
The first is, what is the current state of affairs outside of Montreal, in rural communities, for access to locally relevant English content? The second part is, what is in your work plan to help improve that situation? The third piece is, what can this committee do and what can the Government of Canada do to accelerate and help the work that you're trying to do?
