Canadian Heritage Committee to Conduct CBC Hearings

The Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage has voted unanimously to conduct hearings on the future of the CBC starting in the new year.  The move comes after the Conservative government shelved a potential review earlier this year.  Interestingly, the  hearings could have an impact on copyright reform since tying up the Heritage Committee on CBC matters could take them out of the running to host the lengthy hearings on a possible copyright bill.  Review of the last copyright bill – Bill C-60 – was to have been conducted by a special parliamentary committee smartly designed to balance Heritage and Industry participation.
