Cultural policy and cultural production: MacLean's Magazine and foreign news

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Much Canadian cultural policy has been predicated on the assumption that if market forces were to be allowed to prevail, then it would be very difficult for indigenous material to survive. So a range of measures has been implemented over the last seventy years or so with the basic aim of ensuring a Canadian presence in the more traditional arts such as literature and the theatre, and in the mass media.1 The impact of these has varied - there has been rather more success in imaginative fiction than in cinema for example - but the underlying assumption has changed little. However in the post-nafta world some of the protective measures have been contested.
