Statement made on 26 March 2009 by Senator Joan Fraser

Hon. Joan Fraser:

Honourable senators, nowhere in [the special Senate report on the CBC] did our committee or any member of the committee suggest that the mandate of the CBC should not be to provide service to official language minorities across this country, whether that be to francophones outside Quebec or anglophones inside Quebec.

I was modestly encouraged yesterday when I heard the Minister of Canadian Heritage say that the government would watch, as the leader has suggested, to ensure that the CBC, in this period of, arguably, unnecessarily grave crisis, continue to respect its mandate.

Will the leader convey to the minister the view of this chamber that a core part of that mandate is to preserve local programming for official language minorities across this country?
