I don't think there's anything we will negotiate or contemplate negotiating that would threaten Quebec's culture—or indeed the culture of the rest of the country as well. We are committed to pursuing the kinds of cultural exemptions we've had in the past.
We haven't agreed to anything yet in the negotiations in relation to culture, but the EU has brought two main issues to the table with respect to culture. One is that they feel that our existing cultural exemption is too broad and that it covers everything in the agreement. They've expressed concern that we would have a cultural exemption that would effectively mean that if we negotiated intellectual property rights for artists in another part of the agreement, the cultural exemption would override that—which obviously wouldn't make a lot of sense. So I think we will have some discussions about the structure of our cultural exemption, but that's more of a structural issue.
The second issue they've raised concern about is that they have a commercial interest in books, publishing, and distribution. They have expressed interest in pursuing discussions on that. We haven't reacted to that as of yet.
But overall I would have to say that we're not coming from places that are all that different. They have their own cultural concerns. They exempt audio-visual services. France is certainly a big supporter of the cultural exemption, and we've had discussions directly with France as well on this.
So I'm not sure this will be that significant a problem.
