Canadian Heritage has said that the Conservative government will decide how best to resolve the funding impasse facing the Canadian Television Fund. The CRTC is expected over the next two months to release its decision from CTF hearings, but in an unusual move, Heritage minister Josée Verner issued an Order in Council today asking the CRTC to report and make recommendations directly to her department on the CTF."Our government takes the need for change at the CTF seriously and values the CRTC’s input," Heritage minister Josée Verner said in a statement.
