It's an absolute disgrace according to this report:

In 2006, conventional television stations spent a whopping $688.3 million for foreign television programming compared to $613.2 million for Canadian television programming according to numbers released by the CRTC this week.

The report found that TV broadcasters increased expenditures on foreign programming by 12.2% from $613.2 million in 2005 to $688.3 million in 2006.

When it came to Canadian programming, broadcasters spent $73.9 million on drama and $101.6 million on general interest programming. Add it up and Canadian broadcasters only spent 7.5% of there total programming budget on Canadian drama and general interest programming.

This really is disgusting. CTV/Global etc, while they do porvide us with lots of entertainment, they are bringing in the money by the truck load (simsub = $$$). Yet Global is too cheap to get their HD up and running and CTV's Canadian pride and joy is eTalk.
