On April 22nd, the comment period will close at the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on a non-compliance complaint against Videotron, a Québecor subsidiary. At stake is the status of Vidéotron’s community license for MaTV and 23 million dollars of public funds earmarked for community television in the greater Montreal area. Filed at the CRTC last Fall, ICTV’s intervention raised questions and evidence of Vidéotron’s violations of regulations governing community TV. Since then information disclosed by Vidéotron to the CRTC confirms concerns raised by ICTV. Laith Marouf, a member of the ICTV Steering Committee, joined Off the Hour on Friday, April 18th.
