Michael McCabe
Head of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters

The future of Canadian television... depends on persuading more viewers to choose Canadian programs... [But] today the tools used by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission only put more hours of Canadian TV on the air, and channel more money to the production industry. It's a system that cries out for an answer to the question, "Is anybody watching?"... The Field of Dreams mentality ("Show it and they will watch") is fiction.
