Broadcasters must continue to report on cultural diversity: CRTC

The Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB) is praising the CRTC’s response to its Report of the Task Force for Cultural Diversity on Television, despite the fact that the regulator declined to follow the recommendation that private broadcasters no longer be required to file reports to it on cultural diversity. The CAB filed the report after the commission ordered it to undertake such a study. The CRTC did, however, commend the best practices approach advocated in the report. The CAB states that its members are already working to ensure that the best practices and industry initiatives outlined in the report are undertaken in a timely manner. Below is an excerpt from the commission’s response.
