Border Impact: The Mass Media and Canadian Identity; Proceedings of the Association for Education in Journalism Plenary Session, August 18, 1975.
Cole, Richard R., Ed.
This document contains the transcripts of three speeches given at the 1975 annual convention of the Association for Education in Journalism. Frank Peers'"Border Impact: The Historical Perspective" examines the effect of U.S. media on Canadian media and Canadian identity. It is argued that Canadian identity tends to be expressed in regional or other terms, rather than in terms of a nationwide feeling of identity. "The Legal Perspective: Recent Developments in the Law of Freedom of Expression," by Peter Grant, examines such topics as libel and slander, administration of justice, obscenity, access to government information, and Canadian broadcast-licensing policy. "Freedom, Responsibility, Prospects for the Future," by Keith Davey, summarizes the report of the Senate Committee on Mass Media which investigated Canadian media voices, made recommendations for better media voices, and discussed Canadian cultural survival. The Canadian magazine industry is also examined in the transcript of a question-answer session involving the three speakers listed above and Drs. Donald Gilmore and Harold Nelson. (TS)
