Hon. Sheila Copps (Minister of Canadian Heritage, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, I hope that when the Minister of Finance and I are ready to make an announcement, we will be able to do so in Montreal where the artists themselves launched their plea. Others did likewise in Toronto, the Maritimes and from one ocean to the other. Obviously, this cause has touched all Canadians.

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.

Hon. Sheila Copps (Minister of Canadian Heritage, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, I was just asked by one of his colleagues whether he would be a delegate for me at the convention. I want to assure the hon. House that I am not planting any of these questions. I can tell the House that I thought Ron MacLean scored a hat trick.
