Comparative Policy Structures.
Juneau, Pierre
Canada is a nation replete with telecommunication technology. To control the growing potentials and risks inherent in the increased use of television, radio, and communication satellite technology, in 1969 the Canadian government created the Department of Communications. Its duties include planning, promotion, coordination, and regulation. In addition, the Canadia Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission, a 19-member board that reports to Parliament, has been broadly empowered to regulate and license, and it has the goal of creating a single unified broadcasting system for the entire country. Canadians must determine how they can strike a balance between global understanding and isolationism, between centralization and community control, and between entertainment and objective reality.
