Submission to CRTC 2013-1216-5, Re. Videotron's Application for a Separate Community LIcence for Anglophones in Montreal

Laith Marouf is the former director of Concordia University TV.

In this letter, he opposed Videotron's application for a separate community channel licence to serve anglophones in Montreal.

He documents the significant role that CUTV played in covering the student demonstrations during the 'Quebec spring' of 2012, and his view that the model of CUTV at the time (which was bilingual and reached out to all concerned citizens) could be a model for an independent community TV channel for Montreal.
