Hon. Sheila Copps (Minister of Canadian Heritage, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, the government knew that Radio-Canada's budget was increasing despite the cuts. This means that, in French, most of the projects approved are Radio-Canada's, and this creates an imbalance in the system.
For this reason we have asked all the fund partners to try to find a solution to ensure a balance between the independent producers and all the television stations.
