  • CAB - Diversity in Broadcasting - Letter from the CRTC
    encouraged by the preliminary research and consultations with expert organizations that were undertaken by the CAB in the preparation of its plan The Commission places considerable importance on consultations with communities themselves in the development of relevant and workable solutions to the challenges they face with respect to inclusion in the broadcasting system The wealth of information provided in the Action Plan regarding the challenges persons with disabilities face in society in general and in broadcasting specifically attests to the value of a consultation and research based approach to this process The Commission is satisfied that the CAB s proposed strategy going forward comprehensive consultations focus groups best practices research will help to ensure the development of industry expertise and will foster solid relationships with disability communities two prerequisites for the development of workable solutions While the Commission understands that the deliverables proposed in the Action Plan are examples of what could result from the research phase of the CAB s work the Commission would like to emphasize the value of proposed deliverables such as educational tools for both broadcasters and persons with disabilities the development of a multi faceted recruitment strategy and the development of a concrete portrayal strategy These three areas are key to improving the presence portrayal and participation of persons with disabilities in television programming The Commission expects that the research phase will lead to the development of additional comprehensive solutions beyond those highlighted in the Action Plan The Commission also notes the creation of a Joint Social Issues Committee JSIC Steering Committee consisting of a relatively small group of senior executives from the broadcasting industry who will oversee the implementation of the CAB s Action Plan and an Outreach Committee consisting of representatives from the independent production sector industry guilds and or trade associations representatives

  • Recommended Guidelines on Language and Terminology – PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
    usually not the case Our hypothetical news story that might continue with The committee heard from three blind witnesses one confined to a wheelchair and one suffering from cerebral palsy becomes The committee heard from three witnesses who are blind one person who uses a wheelchair and one person with cerebral palsy Or more simply The committee heard from a number of persons with disabilities Of course this illustration of the appropriate use of terminology rests on the assumption that identifying and referencing individuals and their disabilities is relevant to the news event In many cases referencing a disability in a news story may not be relevant where identifying a disability as a characteristic of a person would have the same relevance as reporting that a person had dark skin or brown eyes The questions that a journalist might ask when writing or reporting a story that involves a person with a disability are Is the person identified first Does the story allow for inclusion of the person into society or does it somehow separate the person from the rest of society Is including a reference to the person s disability relevant to the story At the same time not all disabilities are visible There is a vast array of invisible disabilities as well whether mental health disabilities intellectual disabilities or learning disabilities The same rules of thumb apply The learning disabled and mentally ill also appeared before the committee to state their concerns becomes People with learning disabilities and mental health disabilities also appeared before the committee to state their concerns As a substitute for persons with disabilities which is the commonly accepted generalized term people with disabilities or individuals with disabilities can also be used In the case of a story or news feature about specific occupations skills or other identifier then using a more specific term or personal reference is also encouraged e g employees with disabilities athletes with disabilities etc But in every case it s People first Top Approaching Stories Involving Persons with Disabilities The CAB s research study also found that the reporting of stories involving persons with disabilities tends to focus on human interest angles rather than on issues of concern to the disability community such as transportation and economic barriers In addition this focus on the human interest element of a story involving a person with a disability often translates into stories about an individual heroically overcoming a disability or achieving a goal against all odds of having a disability Our news story about the parliamentary committee would continue A heated debate broke out when a witness one who has overcome incredible obstacles of blindness and physical impairment to obtain a law degree and advocate on behalf of the disabled becomes A heated debate broke out between a witness and a Member of Parliament about the right of persons with disabilities to accessible transportation As a legal advocate for the disability community the witness In effect altering the approach to this story
