Ms. Stangl, you mentioned the social media issue a little earlier, and I think Ms. Hardcastle brought that up as well. I'd like to talk to you about that, because I'm wondering if there's a way that this can be used well. When people have a video of others or themselves beating somebody down, isn't that something we can use to name and shame—I don't know if you want call it that—or to raise the issue and to begin to profile it? Is there anybody who's doing that effectively? Should we be trying to do that?
I would ask Ms. Kuo to respond to that, too, as a journalist. Is there a way in which we can use these kinds of social media contacts, the videos and those kinds of things, to actually highlight the issue and to name and shame—if you want to call it that—the Indian government into doing something on these...? Can that be done effectively?

Are you saying it will be the mainstream media that will present that information better than social media does?

I get the sense that you don't think there is widespread cynicism about mainstream media. I certainly run into that in my riding. I'm just wondering if you would be interested in commenting on that.
People get their information primarily from Facebook and social media now. It's not from the mainstream media, when you look at the survey results. Are you suggesting we need to counter that, so that we elevate the one and then try to bring the other one down to the more realistic notion that it's more of a social conversation than it is a news outlet or venue?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to thank our witnesses for being here and giving us this information.
I would like to ask both of you what the role is of the media in Turkey right now. I think, Ms. Yildiz, you have written that basically there isn't one, but can you give me a little glimpse of whether the regular media and the long-term media still have a role to play? Then what is the role of social media and some of the newer forms of media in Turkey today?
It doesn't matter who goes first. I only have seven minutes, so we will have a very short period of time.

Does Facebook Canada deal with it, or where does this come from?

Do you monitor this? Do you monitor stories like this? Do you monitor stories such as that about the Alberta premier being harassed every hour?

When we talk about Facebook.... We all see the graphs of everyone switching to Facebook. How does it affect the Competition Bureau? They come here today and talk about a journalism project, yet they have not hired one journalism student, or anyone at all. They just take their information from other providers. Is it your job, as a Competition Bureau...?
We're seeing Facebook being the face of news in this country, if not right now, certainly within the next 12 months. They've just about caught up to television, and they've surpassed newspapers. Who regulates that? How do we deal with Facebook when we see what we have seen in this country, especially in the last 18 months?

What are your thoughts on Facebook? This current government has spent $3.6 million on Facebook in eight months, more than from 2008 to 2015. They sit here and talk about how bad the media in this country are, but $3.6 million has gone to the United States.

They have. It's so true. We see that with our Canadian Olympic team and with other things in Canada where everyone signs a flag or we do these things. I think what I'm hearing you suggest is something that I'd call a “living wall”. We have memorials and why not have a living wall where people can post that information as you suggest. People are inclined to do that. It would provide different opportunities, whether it's in written or technological form, such as Twitter, etc. That's a great idea. Thank you very much.
Mr. Callaghan, many of the questions I had for you have been answered by other people, but I have one last question. You talked about filling out forms with doctors. I hate to tell you that I am a doctor, and so I know the answer to this question already. Who pays for those forms?
