Thanks to the thousands of Canadians who have expressed their great concern about Rogers decision to shut down multicultural newsrooms across the country, and especially to the over 880 individuals that took the time to register interventions in support of our efforts at the CRTC to hold Rogers accountable.
This is the final response document in Local 723M’s current complaint process; this is not the final chapter for daily multicultural news in Canada.
In this election year the Canadian Government has the responsibility to call on the CRTC to act on this important matter. Rogers will also be required to tell Canadians why they are the best Company to be entrusted with five of Canada’s six multicultural broadcast licences as they apply for license renewals in 2016/2017.
Hopefully we can continue to count on you for support as we participate in this important process.
Local President, Unifor 830 M
