It's been a while since the CCE took a stance against the CRTC's decision to cut broadcaster spending requirements for Canadian content, but we did receive a response from Canadian Heritage. As we all know, Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly took our industry's feedback seriously and not only returned the CRTC decision for review, but came out last September as a strong proponent of Canadian creators and our media industry.
She was kind enough to send us a response to our letter. Please have a read.
