The Canadian Association of Journalists is concerned a $2.6-billion sale of Shaw Media Inc. could lay the foundation for a series of negative changes to the broadcasting industry in Canada.

“This purchase only lays the groundwork for further consolidation and closures within the Canadian broadcasting industry. Such reductions, while favourable on a balance sheet, mean fewer options for those looking for original Canadian content on their TVs, radios and devices,” CAJ president Nick Taylor-Vaisey said. “They also mean fewer jobs, in Canada, for those who create that content."

The Canadian Association of Journalists demands British Columbia Premier Christy Clark take immediate action to reform the province’s records access law following the release of a report that indicates a breathtaking level of secrecy within her administration.

“Like too many other governments across this country, the Clark administration has repeatedly shown a callus disregard for the public’s democratic right to know what their elected government is doing,” said Canadian Association of Journalists president Nick Taylor-Vaisey.

“Denham’s catalogue of government secrecy requires nothing less than significant reforms to the province’s freedom of information law – a decades-old demand that has been repeatedly ignored by the BC Liberals.”
