TODAY in OTTAWA – The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), in conjunction with The Samuelson-Glushko Canadian Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) and, will be hosting a Flash! conference on January 20, in Ottawa, to talk about the future of television in Canada.
When: Monday, January 20, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Brooks Building, Room 413, 100 Thomas More Street, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, K1N 6N5
What: An informal, moderated discussion about TV in Canada
Why: To support a broad consultation with Canadians by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) about what’s on TV, how Canadians consume TV, and whether Canadians have the proper recourse for their concerns about TV.
Who: All members of the public are welcome to attend.
“The CRTC is poised to make some important decisions about television and so this is a very important opportunity for Canadians to be heard before the CRTC then asks the TV industry what it thinks, if any, the ground rules should be”, said John Lawford, Executive Director and General Counsel of PIAC.
To register, you have two options:
Option 1: Tweet us @Canada_PIAC; or
Option 2: Email
In the meanwhile, PIAC strongly encourages all Canadians to learn more about the CRTC process at CRTC’s TV consultation page
