Mr. Speaker, I rise to offer congratulations to Rogers Communications as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
For years, Rogers has connected communities like mine by investing in the creation and the development of first-class local programming. Shows like Grand Central, Skyways, Out of the Fog are where Newfoundlanders and Labradorians come together to hear and discuss the stories that matter.
This year alone, Rogers TV will produce thousands of hours of informative local programming in Newfoundland and Labrador, benefiting constituents like mine.
Rogers' local commitment extends past community broadcasting. OMNI Television and Citytv connect multicultural and urban communities across the country. Rogers Media Funds has invested millions in the development and distribution of quality Canadian television and film production from coast to coast to coast.
Throughout its history, Rogers Communications has truly understood that local matters.
On behalf of the Liberal caucus, I congratulate Rogers Communications.
