Quote, unquote: The big guys want different content support

“The key to growing Canada’s creative economy is to support large, well-capitalized companies that have the size needed to assume risks, invest in multiple projects and export Canadian content internationally.” 
-- Rogers Communications Inc. in a submission asking the federal government to change the way it supports Canadian content. Rogers makes no secret of the fact that a tax credit scheme would be a benefit to them rather than existing funding mechanisms. (The submission relates largely to film and television.) It recommended setting aside funding at the Canada Council for the Arts for organizations that are neither large, nor well-capitalized. [from the Financial Post]
