Heritage committee looking at relevance of Britain’s Communications Bill to Canada
News | 12/13/2002 5:00 am EST
Editor's Note: The House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage, which is studying the broadcasting system, had intended to go to London, England; Washington DC; and to host a three-day retreat at Meech Lake to put together its report. But the committee’s request for financing for the travel was turned down by the Budget Sub Committee on December 5. Thus, further to the article below, committee members will examine the legislation in paper form only. Members will not be traveling to England to question Parliamentarians there on the British bill.
