Printers' association hopes to change Heritage's mind about allowing printing outside of Canada

The president of the Canadian Printing Industries Association says he hopes to convince the Department of Canadian Heritage to change the Canada Periodical Fund to prevent public money from being spent to print magazines outside of Canada.
Bob Elliott says in a story on the PrintCan website that he is disappointed publishers are no longer required to print their magazines or newspapers in Canada to be eligible for the Canada Periodical Fund; he also said it was difficult to judge the impact of the relaxed regulation:
“Ultimately if there are tax dollars being used to support the printing of publications those Canadian tax dollars should be spent in Canada. This opens the door for that not to happen, for those dollars to be spent outside of Canada.”
