CTV.ca reports that:
“… Harper offered Wednesday to ensure the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ‘reflects and respects Canada's linguistic reality.’
That means the top job at the federal broadcast regulator would alternate between English and French speakers and that the number of CRTC commissioners would reflect the percentage of Canada's francophone population.
The Conservatives acknowledge that the regulator already meets or exceeds such representation. But they say the new minimum standards will ensure it stays that way.”
I was hoping that a Tory majority might see the wind up of the CRTC. Sadly, however, it seems like the media policemen will be alive and well under a Stephen Harper government.
