The CRTC faces a regulatory morass in fixing Canada’s TV drama problem as the major broadcast industry players clash on how to fix the system. The commission’s job looks to be a mission impossible as it struggles with disagreement over what should be considered TV drama, how to fund it (see article in this issue), where it belongs on the schedule, how it should be promoted, and whether there should be a "carrot or stick" approach to ensuring it gets produced. Further, there is also no consensus on which "carrot" or which "stick" initiatives would be most effective.
