Prime Time Face Off: Michael Geist and Janet Yale to debate Bill C-10
As Parliament ponders Bill C-10 and its sweeping modernization to the Broadcasting Act, Prime Time Online will host a debate nearly three decades in the making. The proposed legislative update – the first since the 1990s – has been largely welcomed by the Canadian film and TV production sector, but has also faced its fair share of criticism.
Prime Time Online is thrilled to welcome Janet Yale, Chair of the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review (BTLR) expert panel, whose report served as the basis for Bill C-10, and Michael Geist, Law Professor at the University of Ottawa, and prominent critic of Bill C-10. The two will face off in an enthusiastic discussion on the merits of this important legislation, at our virtual event in early 2021.
