High Fidelity HDTV Inc. Praises Dunbar/Leblanc Report

    TORONTO, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - Canadian independent broadcaster, High Fidelity
HDTV, is pleased with the Report prepared by Laurence Dunbar and Christian
Leblanc on broadcasting policies and regulations, released yesterday by the
Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).
    "The Canadian Association of Broadcasters issued a press release
yesterday stating that it has significant concerns with the Dunbar/Leblanc
Report. This broadcaster does not share those concerns; in fact we see the
report as a breath of fresh air", said High Fidelity HDTV President, Ken
Murphy. He added, "We agree with most of the recommendations made in the
Report and believe they would stimulate more dynamic and responsive Canadian
television programming services for Canadian audiences who demand more choice
and value. The Report is well written, and the recommendations of the authors
of the Report are well thought out, timely and bold. We hope that the Report
will lead to a greater reliance on market forces and smart regulation and a
multi-disciplinary approach within government to improve the Canadian
broadcasting system, while at the same time ensuring what Chairman von
Finckenstein has called the overriding twin objectives, Canadian content and
access to the system. This report is a great start to a debate and regulatory
review which is long overdue."
