CBC/Radio-Canada Annual Public Meeting 2017

September 14, 2017, Ottawa

Members of the media are invited to attend in person or join online CBC/Radio-Canada’s Annual Public Meeting 2017, entitled No Filters. A Conversation about Credibility, Media and the Future of Public Broadcasting.

Featuring a panel of journalists, the event is an opportunity to have a meaningful conversation on the importance of public broadcasting in today’s environment. What value does having a public broadcaster add to our media landscape? How do you decipher reality with the existence of fake news? While citizens have become well equipped with technology to learn about international affairs, who is asking the tough questions that matter most to Canadians?
