Federal aid for the media: CJFE calls on government to launch a transparent public process

The federal government has announced a number of measures to provide almost $600 million to support journalism in Canada to both non-profit and for-profit news organizations to assist the industry during a period of significant disruption and negative financial pressures. CJFE joins in supporting those changes which will allow non-profit news media to operate with charitable status, and those which provide non-refundable tax credits to subscribers of digital news media.

However, CJFE has principled concerns about how the government implements any direct funding of media. Accordingly, as these measures are implemented, CJFE calls on the government to commit to the following principles:

1) The process that determines which news organizations receive government funding must be open and transparent and include an opportunity for public consultation or comment on the criteria for determining how any direct funding is delivered. CJFE believes this is essential to ensure that public confidence in our media is maintained.

2) The criteria for determining which news organizations are to receive government funding must be publicly available before any funding is provided. The criteria must be clear and applied by an independent arms-length panel representative of Canadian journalism, whose members do not derive any benefit from the funding decisions. The panel must continue to operate in accordance with a mandated transparent and public process and report to the public on a regular basis.

3) The Canadian government must explain to the public what it will do to ensure any news organization that receives government funding is independent of government and remains free from government interference editorial or otherwise.

    HOW I GOT MY HUSBAND BACK WITH THE HELP OF DR LARRY  CONTACT ON WHATSAPP NUMBER +1(424)-261-8520 

    I want to say thank you to Dr Larry for the good thing he has done for me though I am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but I can’t hide my happiness and my Joy so I have to share it with the world.
    My marriage crashed about two years ago and I tried all I could within my powers to restore it but to no avail. I saw different posts and testimonies about the good things Dr Larry has been doing so I decided to give it a try. Though he is always a busy man, when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored and just like he said my marriage was restored, since then I am happy and I am living happily in my marriage. I am so grateful to Dr Larry you can always contact him here: [email protected] com or you can WhatsApp him via +1(424)-261-8520  website http://assurancesolutioncenter.website2.me/

    MOST POWERFUL AND TRUSTED LOVE SPELL CASTER 2022

    Hello ladies and gentlemen Happy New Year. I went to respect you and your spells. I must make this testimony known to all. I’ve been to other spell casters without seeing any result. I just wished I came to you earlier, I got the best from you. My ex husband was gone for a year and I went everywhere and other spell casters for help but no result until my friend introduced me to Dr. Jumba after the Love Spell was done, I finally got a call from him. His spells worked wonders and my husband is back full of love. It’s a miracle! He suddenly came back with flowers saying that i should forgive him, i was truly flabbergasted and shocked when my husband knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I’m really short of words and joyful, you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now I am a joyful woman once again. Thank you so much Dr. Jumba To everyone who is looking for a real spell caster should contact Dr Jumba directly on his Email : [email protected] or [email protected] see more reviews about him on his website: https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com WhatsApp: +1 (908) 517-4108

    This is a great achievement for the Canadian news organization! Most news organizations have been suffering from financial problems. I am a manager at https://ulive.chat/ and help people with free live chat with girls across the globe. We should also work together during this pandemic situation!

    This is a well written application that should be applied to the way Government should implement this. However It is not being done so. It is a closed door, very one sided decision process that will undermine the independence of media. It will also cast a shadow over anything written with thoughts about “how much were they paid by the government to say that?”
