Lincoln not surprised by gov’t response to broadcasting report
Clifford Lincoln, who chairs the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage that issued a report on the broadcasting industry, says he is not surprised by the non-committal government response to the report. "I didn’t expect their response to be very specific or detailed because of the circumstances we find ourselves in. It was bound to be a very sort of non-committal document because the government is in transition," Lincoln tells Canadian Communications Reports. "You could see it wasn’t going to deal with any item related to money, which was a big subject of our report. You know, increased and stable funding for the CBC, and increased funding for the Canadian Television Fund, etc. Obviously, they don’t want to commit for the next government."
