The amendment, as amended, read as follows:
That the amendment be amended by replacing the words
“• Bill C-10, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act, including amendments in relation to foreign investment entities and non-resident trusts, and to provide for the bijural expression of the provisions of that Act, which deals among other things with the regulation of film and television production, is currently the subject of consideration by the Senate Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce;
• The Minister has just proposed that various industry stakeholders explain their views on Bill C-10, and this process is likely to monopolize their time and resources;
• The outcome of the consideration by the Senate Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce of Bill C-10 may result in amendments to Bill C-327, An Act to amend the Broadcasting Act (reduction of violence in television broadcasts);
• The outcome of the consideration by the Senate Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce of Bill C-10 could have repercussions for the television industry in general;
• Bill C-10 touches on a sensitive aspect of Canadian society, freedom of expression, and it would be inappropriate to mix consideration of this Bill with consideration of another bill, C-327, some details of which overlap.
with the words
“• Bill C-327 has a laudable goal of seeing a reduction of violence in society, particularly as it relates to children;
• Notwithstanding this goal, witnesses convinced the Committee that Bill C-327 is the wrong means to achieve the goal;
• The committee unanimously supports freedom of expression, including in the media of film and television;
• The Committee also notes thte number of witnesses who spoke to the need for education, media literacy and parental engagement”.
