“MPs are conducting hearings into how to save the television fund, after two cable companies announced abruptly in December they would no longer contribute to it. Cable companies are required by regulation to contribute to the fund, which is then distributed to broadcasters to pay for Canadian productions. The action has created a crisis in the Canadian television production industry, which now employs more than 16,000 people with the help of the CTF.”
