Here is what people are saying:
Rogers decision to cut OMNI News across the country has outraged community groups and politicians across all levels of government.
Rogers has walked away from its responsibilities to the multi-ethnic communities by eliminating all local multicultural news and diversity programs.
Local Multicultural news connects us to our communities, it links generations and provides access to essential information for citizens to participate fully in their communities and our Canadian democracy society.
The CRTC must mandate Rogers to fulfill their obligations to the multicultural communities and bring back local multicultural news to the standard that was in place when Roger’s obtained the original licenses.
Others agree that Rogers should do more, here is what they have to say:
York South – Weston, Liberal MPP Former Anchor on OMNI’s Italian Edition, statement in the Ontario Legislative Assembly, May 11
Vaughan Conservative MP, Julian Fantino, May 29th, 2015 Statement
Rogers executives get call to appear in front of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Heritage on June 17th
