Guest Video: Community TV in Canada: A Proud History

March 21, 2012 in debates

“This video captures the democratic spirit and sequence of events that led to the establishment of Canada’s community television policy in the late 1960s.  Canada was the first country to formally recognize and give both policy and funding support to community television (as opposed to community radio, which had existed much earlier.)  The points it makes are as relevant today as they were then… the irony is that this sector is all but defunct now, as a result of a decade of neglect by that same (formerly visionary) CRTC.”
