Canadian Heritage committee  We only mentioned that as part of our thing, by the way. The interesting thing is that they own access to all of those platforms anyway, so if you're losing market share on one, they're already covered on the whole--

Canadian Heritage committee  Mr. Angus, we really need to rebalance the system. If we really care about small and medium-sized businesses in Canada, and if we really care about nurturing innovation, which typically comes from small and medium-sized businesses, then you have to redress the balance.

Canadian Heritage committee  I think you asked a really good question. You're absolutely right, the issue is that we don't know about the technology, the hardware that people are going to use.

Canadian Heritage committee  Yes. Well, I'm disappointed that you didn't know there's a Pet Network. I just want to add that in general, and on behalf of the community folks and ACTRA as well, the system really needs more money. There has to be a better sort of sharing of the revenues that are generated. W

Canadian Heritage committee  Just to answer the first question first, I said that the act specifies that as broadcasters we're responsible to ensure that we deliver our signal to either the cable companies or the satellite companies, and we do that. I've put it on the record on numerous occasions that we are

Canadian Heritage committee  Thank you. Good afternoon, Mr. Chair, members of Parliament, and ladies and gentlemen. When you stop and look closely at most if not all successful Canadian public policy, you invariably find a fork in the road where policy-makers chose to put Canada first. It's not always an e
