CRTC chair Charles Dalfen addressed the Western Association of Broadcasters at its annual conference in Alberta on June 15. He spoke of a need for Canadians to tell their own stories and hear their own voices, and said one of his priorities was to increase the amount of Canadian English-language drama series on television. He also told broadcasters he didn't anticipate making major changes at the CRTC, but hoped his tenure would be characterized by such values as integrity, quality, civility and balance. Below is an excerpt from his speech.
