For Democratic Canadian Media

This is a proposed media policy document for Canada's largest communications union, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada. It was produced for the union's October 2004 national convention and was initiated by a resolution to the CEP National Convention in 2002. The National Executive Board mandated a committee to study the issues and produce a draft policy. The members of the committee included both elected officers and rank and file members from across the country who work in media industries, and CEP staff members.

The CEP Media Policy sets out recommendations on the critical responsibility of the media to inform Canadians on the broadest range of our society’s activities. It proposes changes to ensure working environments which allow those entrusted with that responsibility to do so fairly, accurately and without fear of reprisal. And it encourages the nurturing of a vibrant Canadian voice, within our broadcasting, print and new media sectors.
