Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to recognize the CBC which recently changed the way in which it develops and delivers its programs.
The new programming and format reflects the cross cultural composition of our country. It is about reaching new audiences and supporting Canadian talent across our country. It is bringing regional issues and points of view to national audiences. It has done this by adding new programs and continuing with the high level of excellence Canadians have come to expect.
In a world where media and foreign programming reach all of us, I wish to congratulate the CBC on maintaining its presence on the world stage.
