Building APTN to last in a changing Canada
By  CMG  •  Posted on  February 27, 2013

Today, CMG filed a submission to the CRTC in support of APTN’s licence renewal. APTN plays an indispensable role in the Canadian broadcasting system.  In its 14 years of existence, APTN has enriched Canada and the world through indigenous programming and coverage of issues in ways and voices we do not find anywhere else. This role needs to be strengthened.

CMG is urging the Commission to:

Renew APTN’s broadcast licence
Reconfirm APTN’s must-carry status under 9.1(h) of the Broadcasting Act in recognition of its exceptional contributions to the Canadian broadcast system
Approve the wholesale rate of $0.40 per subscriber per month to support APTN’s continued development as an indispensable source of programming and news by, for and about Canada’s Indigenous peoples.

You can read the intervention here.
