Call to support the Community TV project ICTV - MTL

Media convergence works against democracy and undermines community empowerment. A television station which claims to be at the service of citizens must be governed by the principles that guide community organizations, have content produced by and for the community and allow a plurality and respect for diverging opinions. We the undersigned call on individuals and organizations of civil society in Montreal to support the community television project ICTV - MTL currently being considered by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).

AQOCI, Quebec's International Cooperation Association

Mission

Quebec’s international cooperation association, AQOCI, consists of 65 organisations working toward humane and sustainable development, in Quebec and abroad.

For a Quebec International Cooperation Agency

Did you know that Quebec taxpayers spend almost $800M every year to finance the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)??

Did you know that Quebec-based organisations have been assigned only 0,6% of CIDA-backed projects last year??

More and more, the values promoted by the federal government through international cooperation are clashing with those of Quebec's international cooperation organisations, and so federal funds are becoming less and less available to local organisations.
