On February 17, 2016, Jean-Pierre Blais, Chairman and CEO of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), will deliver a speech to the Canadian Club of Toronto: Staying informed: TV news in an era of change.

Mr. Blais will share his thoughts on television news and the changes that will soon be coming to Canadian television. With the rise of social media and citizen journalism, it is easier than ever to stay informed about world events as they unfold. There are few substitutes, however, for the trustworthy, authoritative, in-depth news coverage provided by Canadian television stations. In this era of technological change and evolving business models, it is important not lose sight of the fundamental value of news and information that enable Canadians to participate in their democracy.

The speech will be available on the CRTC website at the same time it is being deliverd http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/com200/media2016.htm
