No canadian broadcasting stations or networks before 1952. Caused the delay of the emergence of television in canada. Concerned about what type of culture should be promoted by the fed government and how this culture will impact national sovereignty and identity. High culture was thought to serve some positive benefits of society. This type of contrast was seen as a contrast to u. s. mass culture. After the report, broadcasting comes to canada. Public-private model similar to radio (hybrid of these 2 things) 2 cbc stations in toronto & montreal. Private affiliates would be part of that network. Proximity of u. s. tv seemed to increase the pressure that there had to be a television presence in canada quick or people would become accustomed to seeing american. Tv productions costs proved massively expensive compared to that of radio production (7 times as expensive as an hour of radio content) Cbc had to massively expand its budget for the cost of television.
