Members of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) and the United Steelworkers descended on Parliament Hill on November 24 to push their cause to politicians prior to the next election, expected early next year. The two organizations challenged politicians to make developing a strong cultural and national identity for Canada a priority. The groups presented politicians with their laundry list of what needs fixing, including the CRTC. Below is an excerpt from the document they presented to MPs called A Platform Pitch: Things You Can Fix in the Next Election.
