 Intervention in Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-3 (MuchMusic)
MuchMusic interpreted “reasonable amount of closed caption programming” to mean “whatever we can get for free.” MuchMusic completely ignored and never implemented the expectation to use the Line 21 Text channel.
MuchMusic went right ahead and ignored the encouragement “to caption 90% of all non-music programming during the broadcast day.” But that isn’t the problem.
MuchMusic has been running an inaccessible service for 20 years, aided and abetted by CRTC commissioners who could not possibly imagine why it and its sibling stations could ever be of interest to deaf or blind viewers.
