CCR Short Takes

News | 01/30/2003 5:00 am EST

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 entitled "Heritage committee looking at relevance of Britain’s Communications Bill to Canada" in the Dec. 13, 2002 issue of CCR, 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 (CCR, Dec. 13/02).
