Statement by the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, on the Launch of Let's Talk TV: A Conversation with Canadians

Oct 24, 2013, 17:36 ET from Canadian Heritage

OTTAWA, Oct. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - When it comes to television services, Canadian consumers want choice and flexibility. In the Speech from the Throne, the Government stated that it will enable Canadian families to choose the combination of television channels they want. Specifically, we committed to unbundling TV channels while also protecting Canadian jobs.

Consistent with that commitment, the Canadian Radio-television Communications Commission has today launched a dialogue with Canadians on the future of television. The dialogue launched today will play a part in fulfilling our Speech from the Throne commitment, and I encourage everyone to get involved in shaping their future options with respect to television services.
