Montreal – November 6, 2014 –
Quebec’s English-speaking communities need to see themselves reflected on the airwaves , the Quebec Community Groups Network told the Transport and Communications Committee, which is in Montreal conducting a study on the challenges faced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
In preparation for its presentation, the QCGN consulted a cross-section of members from across Quebec. “We were not surprised by the level of attachment we heard to the CBC in general, and CBC radio in particular,” said QCGN Board Secretary Walter Duszara. “CBC Radio is the media glue that binds us; a proactive and welcome presence, whose importance – especially to isolated communities and vulnerable populations like seniors – cannot be overstated.”
