Statement from Friends of Canadian Media on the first stage of the implementation of the Online Streaming Act

For more than a decade, foreign online steamers have contributed nothing to the systems and structures that support Canadian news and storytelling. Today’s CRTC decision marks the end of their free ride. 

Friends of Canadian Media is thrilled to see that the commission’s decision was in line with virtually all of our recommendations, particularly with respect to financial contributions to local news.

We look forward to seeing support for Canadian news and storytelling reinforced in the remaining steps of the implementation of the Online Streaming Act
