an opportunity for Canadians to learn more about the mandate and operations of CBC Radio Canada To mark the national public broadcaster s 75th anniversary this year s event included a presentation by Foreign Correspondents on the role they play as the eyes and ears of Canadians abroad Streamed live from the Canadian War Museum Canadians were invited to join the meeting by webcast and ask their questions to the President and CEO Chair of the Board Chief Financial Officer and Foreign Correspondents Speakers Tim Casgrain Chair Board of Directors Hubert T Lacroix President CEO Suzanne Morris Vice President Chief Financial Officer Nahlah Ayed Foreign Correspondent Anyck Béraud Foreign Correspondent Jean François Bélanger Foreign Correspondent Paul Hunter Foreign Correspondent Frequently Asked Questions 1 You have recently opened a few stations Do you have any other plans to open stations outside major urban centres More than 6 million Canadians live in a large centre 50 000 pop that is either not served or underserved by local CBC service Our five year strategy 2015 Everyone Every way aims to close this gap by reaching six million more Canadians through new or expanded local services across the country We have already announced expansions in a number of communities across the country You can see our progress report here 2 In your new strategy 2015 Everyone Every way you talk about investing more in digital platforms Can you tell me what role radio and television will play in your future program offering While new media is taking the world by storm and Canadians are its most active users television remains the most pervasive medium of mass culture and radio still has the broadest reach Be assured that radio and television remain key platforms for CBC Radio Canada Of course Canadians are increasingly asking for content how and when they want it on a variety of other platforms and it s our goal to meet this demand by providing content on these digital platforms We re committed to doubling our current level of digital investment to at least five per cent of programming budget by 2015 This increased investment in digital is not meant to replace radio and television but rather to complement these platforms and extend the reach of the kinds of high quality engaging Canadian content that only the national public broadcaster can deliver For example our radio shows like The Debaters and Q can be seen on television or the web and our television shows like Tout le monde en parle or Heartland can be viewed online 3 Does Radio Canada have plans to launch new specialty channels devoted to sports or science Radio Canada has announced the launch of EXPLORA a new French language specialty service dedicated to science health nature and the environment However Radio Canada has no immediate plans to launch a specialty channel devoted to sports 4 More and more Canadians speak other languages than English and French How will you reflect the increasing diversity of our country Diversity is a priority at CBC Radio Canada This means we have a responsibility to reflect not only the diversity of the country and its regions in our programming but also the country s multicultural and multiracial nature It s important that all Canadians be able to recognize themselves on air and that our programs reflect the changing face of Canada on all platforms To reflect the Canadian population CBC Radio Canada broadcasts in English French and eight aboriginal languages We will soon broadcast Hockey Night in Canada in Punjabi again and in Inuktitut too As the national public broadcaster we have established partnerships with organizations like Comité d adaptation de la main d œuvre CAMO Toronto Immigrant Resource Council TRIEC the Aboriginal Human Resource Council Talent Oyster etc CBC Radio Canada also celebrates diversity events like Black History Month Canadian Multiculturalism Day Women s History Month International Day for Persons with Disabilities And as we re continually striving to better reflect the diversity of the country we ve put in place a diversity governance model supported by committees from the senior executive level and both networks CBC and Radio Canada as well as from Corporate Services and our unions 5 What stories does CBC tell that private broadcasters in Canada can t or won t Is it in the national public broadcaster s mandate to broadcast reality shows CBC is the home of Canadian story telling across all of our platforms Shows like Republic Of Doyle Heartland Little Mosque on the Prairie Michael Tuesdays and Thursdays InSecurity and the upcoming Arctic Air are examples of

Meeting 2010 October 20 2010 CBC Radio Canada held its second Annual Public Meeting this morning in Ottawa Canadians from across the country participated via live webcast Archives of the meeting webcast are available here We will also post a set of Questions and Answers which addresses the most frequently asked questions Tim W Casgrain Chair of the Board of Directors Hubert T Lacroix President and CEO and Suzanne Morris Vice President and Chief Financial Officer were on hand to review the highlights of 2009 2010 and provide an overview of the Corporation s direction for the current fiscal year and for the future The Board of Directors played a key role seeing CBC Radio Canada through a very difficult period said Mr Casgrain We successfully overcame many challenges and managed to come out of the year stronger more focused and more financially sound than we were at the outset Mr Lacroix used the opportunity to highlight the importance of a strong and relevant CBC Radio Canada in light of the continuing transformation of Canada s media industry Recent changes in our industry leave CBC Radio Canada as the country s only national television broadcaster not owned by a cable or satellite company What s clear to me is that the continued concentration of ownership in Canada s media industry reinforces the need for strong independent public broadcasting in Canada It also underlines the need for a regulatory environment that guarantees an open system where Canadians have access to a wide range of programming including ours regardless of who owns the distribution channels We want what Canadians want a vibrant CBC Radio Canada that gives voice to a creative nation continued Lacroix CBC Radio Canada s Annual Public Meeting permits the Corporation to forge closer ties with the public to show greater transparency in its management of public funds and to reaffirm its commitment to serving Canadians Read the news release Frequently Asked Questions 1 Why is CBC Radio Canada opposed to the Access to Information Act when it comes to the Corporation ensuring transparency We are not opposed to the Access to Information Act ATIA and have always been committed to fulfilling our obligations in this regard Since we became subject to the Act on September 1 2007 we ve released over 70 000 pages of information However Section 68 1 of the Act provides CBC Radio Canada the only journalistic organization subject to this Act in the country with a specific exclusion for any information that relates to its journalistic creative or programming activities There is some divergence of opinion on Section 68 1 that can only be settled by the courts 2 What is CBC Radio Canada s plan regarding the transition to digital TV slated for August 31 2011 CBC Radio Canada is working hard to meet its goal of installing DTV transmitters in all markets where it originates programming 27 transmitters by August 31 2011 We re confident that the plan we ve established will provide an appropriate level of over the air service given industry trends and consumer demand When all is said and done less than one percent of Canadians who are currently receiving an over the air CBC or Radio Canada signal will need to switch to a cable or satellite provider if they want to continue receiving that signal 3 CBC Radio Canada appears to have a very biased style of reporting Does the Corporation have an editorial policy CBC Radio Canada is fully committed to maintaining accuracy integrity and fairness in its journalism As a Canadian institution and a press undertaking CBC Radio Canada is committed to compliance with a number of principles Foremost among those is our commitment to scrupulously abide by the journalistic code of ethics formulated in our own handbook of Journalistic Standards and Practices which stresses lack of bias in reporting The Ombudsman is completely independent of CBC Radio Canada program staff and management reporting directly to the President of CBC Radio Canada and through the President to the Corporation s Board of Directors He acts as an appeal authority for complainants who are dissatisfied with responses from program staff or management In addition to the above both CBC and Radio Canada have just finished conducting a comprehensive study of our news coverage On the CBC side independent consultants and experts interviewed 2500 Canadians and analyzed nearly 16 000 television radio and Internet stories They compared our products to competitors and the conclusion is that there is no such thing as the kind of bias that people are referring to when they speak of CBC Radio Canada We invite those interested to consult the CBC study that is currently available on our website here Radio Canada s study is still ongoing 4 Are there any plans to return to CBC Radio 2 s initial programming No Since its relaunch in the fall of 2008 CBC Radio 2 including its four online music streaming

Internet users from across Canada were able to find out more about the national public broadcaster and to submit their questions live Tim W Casgrain Chair of the Board of Directors Hubert T Lacroix President and CEO and Suzanne Morris Vice President and Chief Financial Officer reviewed the highlights of 2008 2009 and provided an overview of the Corporation s strategic direction for the current fiscal year and for the future If the last year made one thing clear it s that serious financial challenges are the reality for CBC Radio Canada and that we have no choice but to adapt said Tim W Casgrain Chair of the Board of Directors Our success rests on reaching more Canadians in more ways than ever before with content they want and indeed need It s what we focused on preserving last year and it s what we re committed to safeguarding in the future It s what Canadians expect and its what they deserve The Annual Public Meeting allowed the Corporation to forge closer ties with the public to show greater transparency in its management of public funds and to reaffirm its commitment to serving Canadians Hubert T Lacroix declared All CBC Radio Canada s services on television radio and the Internet in English and French cost only 34 per year per Canadian which translates into less than 10 cents a day Our Annual Public Meeting has allowed us to show our shareholders the wide range of services they receive for that amount and to listen to their comments and ideas Archives of the meeting webcast are available online English with simultaneous interpretation or original webcast Answers to the most frequently asked questions will be posted at this address shortly Frequently Asked Questions Because CBC Radio Canada s annual public meeting last 60 minutes we were not able to answer all questions submitted online In this section you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions on September 23 2009 1 With the recent drop in advertising revenues and the fact that some governments worldwide have chosen to fund their public broadcasters without advertising will CBC Radio Canada eliminate advertising on its networks Will CBC Radio Canada accept audience donations
