From the WGC:
Tomorrow, Thursday the 6th of August, the Canadian Television Fund will host a virtual Town Hall to release and discuss initial key policy issues concerning the creation of the Canada Media Fund (CMF). This is the launch of the consultation process that will inform the policies and guidelines of the new program.
From there, stakeholders – that’s you – are invited to write and share their perspectives on the issues. We encourage you to take this opening and run with it – the more Canadian screenwriters voice their perspectives, the more we ensure Canadian voices are represented on our screens.
We’ll know the parameters of the discussion after the 6th, and we’ll tell you more then. We encourage everyone to tune in though and find out first hand. To do so, pre-register at http://www.ctf-fct.ca/ctf_home_en.html. [Important Note: when last we tried, there was some difficulty using Firefox and Safari to register – you may have to be on IE to register and watch the proceedings – so try early to debug and please persevere].
There is scary talk of reducing the restrictions on American writers on Canadian shows. If you think that Canadian culture dollars should go to support Canadian shows, rather than American shows shot on Canadian soil, you might want to participate.

Anyone having similar troubles with Opera?
MAC users, please note that the webcast can be viewed on Windows Media Player 9 for MAC.
Windows Media Player 9 for MAC (2 options: download WMP or Flip4Mac, a QuickTime plug-in)
Have that plug-in installed in my system. Didn't seem to help yesterday.
Hang on...let me get back to you...
Tried with Firefox and Flip4Mac, tried with Opera which ALmost worked for about fifteen seconds. No dice.
