The Department of Communications Under the Free Trade Regime

Edward Comor

Abstract


Abstract:
In this analysis of the FTA, the emerging "information economy'' and their
impact on the Department of Communications, the author argues that the
FTA has institutionalized Canada's dependency on U.S. culture and
information products. In so doing, the author shows how the FTA and
related federal government activities directly contradict mandated
Department policy.


Résumé:
Dans cette analyse de l'ALE et son effet sur le Ministère des Communications, l'auteur soutient que l'ALE a institutionalisé la dépendence culturelle du Canada vis-à-vis les Etats-Unis en matière de produits d'information. Il est aussi demontré que certaines dispositions de l'ALE et d'autres activités du gouvernment fédéral dans le domaine de la communication contredisent directement les politiques du Ministère.
