Bill C-48 tentatively scheduled for discussion May 27-28 The Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage will examine Bill C-48, a bill to amend Canada’s retransmission laws, on May 27 and 28, says the committee’s clerk (CNM Update, May 2/02).

The tight timeframe would seem to indicate that it won’t be possible to call witnesses.
