  • Canadian finance minister pushes for C-10
    Friday May 02nd 2008

    Canada’s finance minister has threatened to force a national election to ensure passage of Bill C-10, a proposed bill that would end tax credits for Canadian films and TV shows deemed offensive. Finance minister Jim Flaherty told the Senate Banking Committee that Bill C-10 was a matter of confidence and should not be amended to ease censorship fears from Canadian actors and filmmakers. Flaherty said that his proposed legislation was a matter of taxpayer dollars, and not curbing edgy, controversial films as critics argue.

  • Popular fare’s not enough to help CTV
    Thursday May 01st 2008

    The recent writers strike has taken a bite out of the latest earnings statement from Canadian ratings leader CTV. To ease the impact of the WGA strike, CTV replenished its primetime schedule with new acquisitions and aired popular reality shows like Fox’s “American Idol.” But it wasn’t enough. Canadian newspaper publisher Torstar lost CAN$500,000 ($495,000) on its 20% stake in CTV parent CTVglobemedia, compared with earnings of CAN$600,000 in 2007, mainly because of the negative impact the Hollywood shutdown had on CTV’s TV ad revenue.
