Hon. Francis Fox (Minister of Communications):

I am

informed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as follows:

1. (a) Burton Kramer Associates Ltd., Graphic Design Consultants, 206 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

(b) The contract signed on June 27, 1973 with Burton Kramer Associates Limited called for the payment of $50,000 for the research, design and development of a symbol. The contract also called for assessment and application phases, the fees for which were to be based upon standard design office rates.

No accurate statement of the amounts paid under these later phases can now be provided since the accounts payable records for these related services, dated nine and ten years ago, are no longer in existence. The requirements of the relevant federal legislation which sets out the period of retention of such records, have been met.

Hon. Francis Fox (Minister of Communications):

I am

informed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as follows:

1. (a), (b), (c) and (d) Yes. These expenses are components of over-all program costs, and it has not been customary to require the CBC to provide such details of its internal management and administration. The background to this custom is explained in detail in the reply to question No. 2,530 answered November 6, 1975.

2. (a) Ten. (b) One.

Hon. Francis Fox (Minister of Communications):

I am

informed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as follows:

1. The number of CBC personnel attending the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, including all reporters and technical staff was 71. This group serviced four CBC networks-English television, English radio, French television and French radio- and provided coverage of Olympic events from seven different venues.

2. (a) and (b) Such costs are components of the over-all cost of the special programming produced for the Olympics, and it has not been customary for Parliament to require the Corporation to provide such details of its internal management and administration. The background to this custom is explained in detail in the reply to question No. 2,530, answered November 6, 1975.

The CBC policy in this regard is in line with that of other large Canadian corporations and government departments.2 Where the Corporation assigns an employee to a foreign location, a posting loan may be made to aid in the transition from Canada to the foreign country. The Foreign Service Directives of the Government of Canada apply to all such loans.

Hon. Francis Fox (Minister of Communications):

Mr. Speaker, I am on the record, not only in this House in previous replies to questions from my hon. friend, but also in the newspapers of the land. I refer to The Globe and Mail where I indicated quite clearly that the Canada Council was welcome to appear before the House of Commons Committee examining Bill C-24. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding. They have done so. It was indicated in the same article in The Globe and Mail on the part of the official critic of the Opposition on matters of culture and communications that the only thing he could reproach this Government for, in the field of culture and communications over the past four years, was for having done too much for the cultural community.
