Broadcast unions want nets to disclose how much they spend on Canadian content

Canada’s two largest broadcast unions say large networks should be forced to publicly reveal how much they spent on Canadian programming to ensure past commitments are being met. The unions and other groups are responding to a CRTC review that may force CTV, Global Television and TVA to disclose total revenues and how much they spent on Canadian programming between 1997-2000. The proceeding – PN 2001-5 – could also result in the CRTC releasing data on the actual and potential audience reach of the networks, and a comparison of viewing levels to Canadian and foreign programming by program category for the years 1997-1999.
