The opinions expressed in this editorial are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Decima Reports. Canadian Heritage needs to go back to the drawing board and come up with a new plan for reconfiguring the Canadian Television Fund.The fund, which benefits from millions of dollars in taxpayers’ money courtesy of Canadian Heritage, has long been criticized for the complex manner in which it is run. Heritage minister Liza Frulla suggested a cure back in June – allow the CTF board to develop the fund’s policies and have Telefilm Canada administer it.  But the recently released auditor general’s report (see article on page 4), not only criticized the way the fund is administered but also Frulla’s proposal. Her recommendation – while short on specifics – doesn’t appear to be the prudent way to go. After all, as the auditor general notes, Telefilm’s recently revised mandate makes the government agency responsible to Parliament not just for carrying out TV production policies, but also for making them. With an election expected early next year, Canadian Heritage bureaucrats should be working now to give Telefilm more policy-making powers within a revamped CTF. The department should be ready with a new plan to present to the incoming Canadian Heritage minister following the election. Past changes to the CTF have done little to quell the criticism. Taking into consideration the auditor general’s report, Canadian Heritage needs to get it right this time.
