McMurdy on Verner’s CAB Speech

Dierdre McMurdy covers Canadian Heritage Minister Josee Verner's speech yesterday to the CAB, noting that new fees for over-the-air television is a longshot and that a new copyright bill is about six weeks away.


  1. Six weeks … thirty days hath… waitam
    Call me cynical, but – they’re going to announce a new copyright bill around December 19th???

    Isn’t that the ulitimate equivalent of announcing something Friday at 5PM before a long weekend? And that it implies the government is hoping it can slip something in and have it become old news before it ever becomes news at all?

  2. Dwight Williams says:

    I think you’re right, “Cynical”…
    The timing will be more than a little suspicious.
