Commentaire / Comment
CBC radio is essential as it is the only media we have in our home. We live 1 hr north of Ottawa in the Gatineau Valley of Western Quebec. As much as I appreciate CBC Ottawa, I am so disappointed that I can never get any Quebec coverage unless it is broadcast on a national level. Nothing about the Lower North Shore, Gaspv©, Eastern Townships, Quebec City, not even Montreal news. Why not? Isn't it in the best interest of Canada to have Quebec English speaking citizens aware and current on Quebec provincial issues? Please consider adding Quebec and Montreal CBC radio availability in English for those that live between Ottawa and Maniwaki. Thank you.

Raisons pour comparaitre / Reasons for appearance
I want to ensure the CRTC hearing is made aware of the limited access of CBC radio to those of us who live in the Gatineau Valley. TV is not an option to our family as the cost of cell phones, which allows us internet access, means we cannot afford television access as well. I am a university graduate who feels alienated in the limited radio coverage of my province , even though I live one hour from Ottawa and 2 and 1/2 hours from Montreal. I believe it is in our national interest to have informed citizens on a provincial and national level. I can speak in a coherent, informed manner that I believe will provide the CRTC commissioners a perspective they are not aware of. My presence at the hearing would enable the commissioners an opportunity to ask me questions and learn about our limited CBC media coverage.
