CanCon in the Era of Digital Behemoths

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Canadians telling Canadian stories, making a place in a media marketplace crowded out by bigger, better-financed cultural voices from outside this country. That aspiration prompted what's now somewhat affectionately called, CanCon rules. In effect since 1971, they've always been the subject of great debate. The Agenda looks at whether that conversation has changed in the era of Netflix, Apple, Facebook and other global mega-players.
