Statement made on 02 May 2012 by Senator Claudette Tardif

Hon. Claudette Tardif (Deputy Leader of the Opposition):

Honourable senators, to follow up on the question asked by my colleague, I know that I asked the Leader of the Government this question last week. The Leader of the Government said she would get back to me with an answer. I would like to revisit the matter and ask her again to ask the heritage minister to support this request, since this is a problem facing several minority French-language newspapers.

Could the Leader of the Government ask the minister to acknowledge that the new funding formula currently being used for the Aid to Publishers component of the fund puts minority French-language newspapers at a serious disadvantage, because it does not take their specific needs into account? This program is replacing a previous program, the Publications Assistance Program.
