CRTC's new approach to media ownership
On January 15, the CRTC introduced new policies to maintain "a diversity of voices" in the Canadian broadcasting system. For the CRTC news release, see http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/NEWS/RELEA...08/r080115.htm.
The CRTC has said that it will:
* impose limits on the ownership of broadcasting licences to ensure that one party does not control more than 45 per cent of the total television audience share as a result of a transaction; and
* not approve transactions between companies that distribute television services (such as cable or satellite companies) that would result in one person effectively controlling the delivery of programming in a market.
