President & CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada to address The Economic Club of Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 6, 2012) - In his first public address since having to make difficult choices with respect to CBC/Radio-Canada's services and programming, Hubert T. Lacroix speaks to the future of public broadcasting in Canada. Despite a sizeable reduction to its budget, he contends that CBC/Radio-Canada still occupies a unique, prominent and valued place - not only at the heart of Canadian culture and democratic life, but also as a cornerstone of an industry in upheaval. Far from retrenching in the face of adversity and daunting challenges, the broadcaster has its sights squarely set on extending its leadership in Canadian programming, regional presence and digital platforms. With unrelenting and encouraging support from most of the public it serves, it promises to not just survive, but thrive in the years the come.
