ELEVENTH REPORT OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE ON BROADCASTING, FILMS AND ASSISTANCE TO THE ARTS.
STANBURY, ROBERT
IN ITS ELEVENTH REPORT THE CANADIAN HOUSE OF COMMONS' STANDING COMMITTEE ON BROADCASTING, FILMS AND ASSISTANCE TO THE ARTS STATES ITS POSITION VIS-A-VIS THE WHITE PAPER ON BROADCASTING REFERRED TO IT IN NOVEMBER 1966. IT PROPOSES TO INTRODUCE NEW LEGISLATION ON THE GENERAL LINES SET OUT IN THE PAPER. IT LISTS THE ORGANIZATIONS AND PERSONS WHO SPOKE TO THE COMMITTEE OR SENT BRIEFS. IT EXPRESSES THE CONVICTION THAT TELEVISION SHOULD BE AN EFFECTIVE INSTRUMENT FOR FOSTERING NATIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS AND STRENGTHENING NATIONAL UNITY AND THAT PARLIAMENT SHOULD DEFINE THE PUBLIC INTEREST, ENUNCIATE NATIONAL POLICY, CREATE A VIABLE STRUCTURE WITHIN WHICH THE SERVICE CAN BE ASSURED, BUT NOT BE INVOLVED IN THE SUPERVISION. ITS POSITION IS EXPRESSED REGARDING SUCH MATTERS AS REGULATORY AUTHORITY, STRUCTURE OF THE BROADCASTING SYSTEM, PENALTIES, OWNERSHIP OF FACILITIES, AND FINANCIAL PROVISION. IT WOULD HAVE THE BOARD OF BROADCAST GOVERNORS RESPONSIBLE FOR AMPLIFIYING BROAD PRINCIPLES LAID DOWN BY PARLIAMENT AND FOR ARBITRATING DISPUTES AND THE CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION RESPONSIBLE FOR DECISION MAKING IN CARRYING OUT PUBLIC POLICY THROUGH BROADCASTING. IT WOULD ALLOW FOR PRIVATE BROADCASTING FACILITIES AND FOR PROVISION OF ALTERNATIVES TO ENSURE EXTENSION OF FULL NETWORK SERVICE IN BOTH ENGLISH AND FRENCH. (RT)
