April 10, 2014, Montréal (Québec, Canada) also known as Tiohtià:ke -- 12 days remain for Montrealers to support Independent Community Television (ICTV).

On April 22nd, the comment period will close at the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) on a non-compliance complaint against Videotron, a Québecor subsidiary. 

At stake is the status of Vidéotron's community license for MaTV and 23 million dollars of public funds earmarked for community television in the greater Montreal area.

Filed at the CRTC last Fall, ICTV's intervention raised questions and evidence of Vidéotron's violations of regulations governing community TV. Since then information disclosed by Vidéotron to the CRTC confirms concerns raised by ICTV.

At, ICTV's complaint, application for a community station run by a non-profit organization, and sample letters of support are available to aid community organizations and individuals in preparing submissions for the CRTC concerning ICTV's complaint and vision for what community TV could be in Montreal.

For interviews, contact: Laith Marouf (ICTV Steering Committee Member) at (514) 999-1948.
