Commentaire / Comment
My name is Colin Clarke. I am a freelance classical musician and chiefly work as conductor for multiple orchestras in and around the Greater Toronto Area, including the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra. I can attest firsthand to the devastating effects of COVID-19 on the Canadian music scene. I believe that these broadcast companies should be required to honour in full their contractual financial obligations to Canadian music. If it is deemed necessary by the CRTC that those obligations be fulfilled over a longer period of time in order to provide broadcasters with some relief, I think that would be acceptable, but only if the receiving parties get least half of their funding immediately. Canadian music is in real jeopardy, and this inaction has only made that jeopardy worse.
