Tearing the Fabric of Canada: The Broadcast Media and Canadian Identity.
Weiss, Elaine F.
This paper explores the perceived threat of American cultural "imperialism" in Canada, the effect of constant exposure to American broadcasting on the Canadian national identity, the role broadcasting plays in shaping Canadian identity, and the efforts by the Canadian government to "Canadianize" its broadcasting. A brief history of the broadcast media and Canadian-American relations is presented along with reports which emphasize the vital role played by the media in establishing Canadian identity. Special attention is given to the development of Canadian cable television which has a special function within the broadcasting system. (RB)
