CRTC reduces Canadian content rules on television

They are relaxing CanCon requirements, dropping genre protection (not being enforced anyway), saying no to a Netflix tax and a few other tweaks. The Shomi/Crave thing sounds like a big deal but isn’t (Bell says it is playing by existing rules regarding exclusive shows anyway). Plenty for consumers to like, plenty for BDUs to like, not a lot for Canadian producers to like.
