VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) -  On Wednesday, May 25, the Fraser Institute will release a new study about the emergence of low-cost, online programming and its effect on the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission's (CRTC) ability to regulate.

The study, Technological Change and Its Implications for Regulating Canada's Television Broadcasting Sector, examines the CRTC's current policies to protect and subsidize Canadian content and spotlights the challenges faced by traditional broadcasters (TV stations, for example).
