CNM Short Takes

Clarification
Alliance NumériQC spokesperson Daniel Boismenu has expressed concern that the lead article in the last issue of Canadian NEW MEDIA (CNM, October 18/01) might lead to a perception the association has $30 million in core funding, and that it has plans to ressurect IMPAC. While president Claude Dagenais told CNM that "if all goes well, $30 million will be transited through the association over three years," Boismenu stresses that project funding from Canada Economic Development has not been finalized, and that the Quebec government has announced only $5 million per year over three years in core funding for Quebec’s multimedia industry, roughly $2 million of which is tagged for the Alliance. While the article explicitly stressed that the Alliance would not seek to resurrect IMPAC, the story title may have led to the conclusion that the group would use its funding to create a national association. This is not the case. Canadian NEW MEDIA sincerely regrets any confusion which may have arisen.
