CRTC comments on government demand for tech review

BANFF - Speaking in his opening address to the Banff World Television Festival, CRTC chair Charles Dalfen invited stakeholders to comment on the technological environment facing the Canadian broadcasting system. The CRTC released Public Notice 2006-72 today in response to the announcement, seeking submissions from the public by September 1, 2006. The final report is required by December 14, 2006. “We expect that the material contained in the parties’ submissions in response to the Order in Council will form part of the basis of their filings in our proceeding on over-the-air television, thereby avoiding unnecessary duplication of effort and resources,” added Dalfen.
