Earlier this month, the Canadian Ethnic Media Association’s Chair, Madeline Ziniak joined a roundtable of industry leaders to discuss the future of linguistic diversity and representation in Canadian broadcast policy.
Sponsored by York and Ryerson University’s Joint Graduate Program in Communication & Culture, the panel addressed the impact of the proposed amendments to the Canadian Broadcasting Act (Bill-C10), brought forward in November by Canadian Heritage.
Topics included building meaningful policies to support ethnic media, funding and the role of streaming services within the proposed framework.
Moderated by York University’s Mark Hayward, the panel included Aldo Di Felice, president of TLN Media Group Inc; Monika Ille, chief executive officer, APTN and Randy Reid, CEO/general manager of VIBE 105.
