Here’s how you can help us:

The December 3, 2020 announcement of a “major transformation” and the “modernizing” of Radio Canada International – RCI (see here for details on the planned changes), is very hard to accept as international broadcasters dedicated to our audience.

We at the RCI Action Committee ask you to get in touch with Canada’s Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault and ask him to make CBC/Radio-Canada respect the Broadcasting Act Article 46 (2) which says there must be an international service, and the Order in Council 2012-0775 which says RCI must “produce and distribute programming targeted at international audiences” (more details on both here).

Another minister who should be concerned with the situation at RCI, and who you should get in touch with is the Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau. Also, if you’re in Canada, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your Member of Parliament. They represent you and coming from a constituent, your concern becomes their concern.

Please email Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault at hon.steven.guilbeault@canada.ca

Please also email:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at pm@pm.gc.ca

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland at chrystia.freeland@dpmo-cvpm.gc.ca

Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau at marc.garneau@international.gc.ca

List of Members of Parliament and their email addresses https://www.ourcommons.ca/Members/en

- tell them why Radio Canada International is important to you

- or what it means to have news from Canada tailored for an external audience

- or what your fondest memories are of hearing/reading reports from RCI

- and maybe, why you think there should be more, and not less contextualized programming for international audiences from RCI

Voici comment vous pouvez nous aider

L’annonce du 3 décembre 2020 d’une «transformation majeure» et de la «modernisation» de Radio Canada International – RCI (voir ici pour plus de détails sur les changements prévus), est très difficile à accepter en tant que diffuseurs internationaux dédiés à notre public.

Au Comité d’action de RCI, nous vous demandons de prendre contact avec le ministre du Patrimoine canadien Steven Guilbeault et de lui demander de faire en sorte que CBC / Radio-Canada respecte l’article 46 (2) de la Loi sur la radiodiffusion qui stipule qu’il doit y avoir un service international, et le décret en Conseil 2012-0775 qui dit que RCI doit «produire et distribuer une programmation conçue pour des auditoires étrangers» (plus de détails sur les deux ici).

Un autre ministre qui devrait se préoccuper de la situation à RCI, et avec qui vous devriez entrer en contact, est le ministre des Affaires étrangères Marc Garneau. Aussi, si vous êtes au Canada, n’hésitez pas à contacter votre député. Ils vous représentent et venant d’un électeur, votre préoccupation devient leur préoccupation.

Veuillez envoyer un courriel au ministre du Patrimoine canadien Steven Guilbeault à hon.steven.guilbeault@canada.ca

Veuillez aussi envoyer un courriel au

Premier ministre Justin Trudeau pm@pm.gc.ca

Ministre des affaires étrangères Marc Garneau à marc.garneau@international.gc.ca

Liste des députés et leurs adresses courriel https://www.noscommunes.ca/Members/fr

- dis leur pourquoi Radio Canada International est importante pour vous

- ou ce que signifie avoir des nouvelles du Canada adaptées à un public externe

- ou quels sont vos plus beaux souvenirs d’entendre / lire des rapports de RCI

- et peut-être pourquoi vous pensez qu’il devrait y avoir plus, et pas moins de programmation de RCI

    I am pleased to see that like minded people are rallying to preserve RCI. May I suggest that you add the Hon. Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, to the contact / write list.

    When one considers the low internet penetration within the developing world and the ease of which the internet can be censured and even shut down in countries with anti-democratic regimes, shortwave radio still has a vital role in the 21st century. Think Iran and Syria folks.

    10s of millions of people around the world have access to inexpensive, yet remarkably decent shortwave radios – yet these same people cannot even dream of the luxury of internet access. In countries where batteries are prohibitively expensive and in villages where there is no electrical service, crank powered shortwave radios fill the void. I haven’t seen a crank up laptop as yet and I don’t think we ever will.

    Preserve RCI, preserve the Sackville NB transmission facility!

    I do agree that the CBC is no friend of RCI – RCI needs to become independent of the CBC and receive its own fair share of stable funding.

    I would also add that I would like to see the amount of programming on RCI increased. Building on existing programming, a possible source of additional – non-CBC originated programming may be obtainable by working with the Coady International Institute in Antigonish Nova Scotia to develop educational programming to be broadcast to the developing world. Let me make one thing clear however – this would be to add to and build on existing programming.

    May I suggest that you also promote some key frequencies and broadcast times to encourage people to tune in to RCI. A letter to a politician may carry more clout if the writer can honestly say, I was listening to RCI last night …

    It might be a good idea to take some photos of inexpensive SW radios currently available – the website for The Source may be a good source, pardon the pun. There are a surprising number of people in Canada and abroad who own a shortwave radio and yet may not really be aware of it. An excellent example are the many hand crank Grundig/Eton emergency radios that many Canadians – and no doubt many others around the world – own. They do have SW, and based on the one I own, the one my wife owns, and the one my in-laws own – the SW is amazingly good. There are so many markets for RCI – Canadians traveling abroad on vacation, or work; future immigrants, people in developing nations seeking information, people in oppressive regimes seeking objective news and information etc.

    Keep up the good work RCI – Canada – and the World – needs you!

    Dear team
    RCI is connecting & informing us anytime , anywhere in the world. It is bringing Canad closer to us via its broadcasting of its various programmes which are up to date , to the point , well discussed , well analysed and well presented to audiance . closure of RCI will do a great damage to worldwide listeners who listen RCI programs which are impartial. I hope govt. Of Canada will reconsider the the said issue regarding closure of RCI . Save Radio Canada Internationl!
