$100+ million for independent media in Canada up for grabs

From our friends at CACTUS (this affects independent documentary too):

Canadians have until Feb 1, 2010 to tell the CRTC what to do with the over $100 million collected every year for community television.  This money should and could be going to support independent filmmakers, documentary and film distribution, local programming, local drama, volunteer training and access to equipment and studios.  It could even be used to support a network of community media centers across the country like local libraries.    Write the CRTC and tell them what to do with YOUR money!  For more information, go to CACTUS or OpenMedia.ca.  Or you can write to the CRTC directly through an online submission form.
