Canadian Heritage committee  Are you talking about the Canada 150 spending plans and celebrations for next year?

May 3rd, 2016Committee meeting

Catherine Edwards

Canadian Heritage committee  Right. We met with Industry Canada a couple of times, when we knew that they were in the process of creating their digital economy strategy that was published last year. I think a lot of parties felt that it wasn't very specific. There were broad generalities. But certainly one

Canadian Heritage committee  Cable companies, as I was describing, originally had head ends in every little community, so it was convenient and cost-efficient to have a studio there. What has happened with satellite companies and some of the ITP TV services like Telus is that they get licences over huge area

Canadian Heritage committee  There are two issues with it. One is that for CRTC community channels right now, the companies are supposed to spend 50% of their schedule and budgets facilitating citizens to have a voice. That's to try to encourage cable companies to provide community access. What Rogers is a

Canadian Heritage committee  I can comment in an informed manner only from the point of view of the community sector. The 2008 diversity of voices hearing occurred before the most recent mega-mergers—before Bell bought CTV, before Shaw bought Global. We are, as you heard from Professor Winseck, in a much mor

Canadian Heritage committee  The purpose of community media is exactly to enable, to be that bridge for ordinary citizens who are producing content—we see that all over the Internet—but content that is not necessarily properly researched, that does not necessarily meet journalistic standards, and does not ne

Canadian Heritage committee  It's definitely about renewal. It's every bit as relevant as ever. Back in the day, when community radio and TV were instituted, they were teaching media skills training on the latest media of the day at that time. It's even more complex now. You still need to know how to create

Canadian Heritage committee  Yes, absolutely. For example, John Savage is sitting in the back here. He's with the Ontario Library Association. They're introducing “makerspaces”. You may have seen them in recent years. I see them more in Ontario than in Quebec. In the last four or five years, public librari

Canadian Heritage committee  Could I have an earpiece, please? I can't hear you.

May 3rd, 2016Committee meeting

Catherine Edwards

Canadian Heritage committee  These digital media centres would teach not just audio and video production, as in the past, but also web design and gaming. Their content would be distributed not just on cable TV, but over the air, on satellite, on the Internet, and on mobile devices. This $150 million is enoug

Catherine Edwards

Canadian Heritage committee  Thank you, Madam Chair and members. I'm Catherine Edwards, the executive director of the Canadian Association of Community Television Users and Stations, or CACTUS. With me is André Desrochers, our board member from Quebec. CACTUS was formed in 2008 to bring it to the attention

Canadian Heritage committee  The problem is the lack of funds. One of our members, Valemount Community Television in British Columbia, already offers this type of service. It is possible to collect all this information from members of our organization. But I am a volunteer, and it would take time and effort.

March 2nd, 2011Committee meeting

Catherine Edwards

Canadian Heritage committee  Yes, I can confirm it. CBC indicated that, after 2013, its satellite network transmitting the signal to all its transmission towers will probably no longer be in service. CBC or Radio-Canada will no longer transmit outside the 31 main and mandatory markets. People from the Canadi
