China Central Television, voice of the Communist Party, must be removed from the CRTC’s approved list of programs for distribution in Canada, MPs said yesterday. It follows a 2022 federal ban on state-run Russia Today.

The Commons Special Committee on Canada-China Relations in a report to Parliament said cabinet should “direct the CRTC to a new broadcasting policy of general application that authoritarian state-controlled broadcasters not be on the List Of Non-Canadian Programming Services And Stations Authorized For Distribution.” China Central Television is currently approved for distribution to cable and satellite customers in Canada along with Beijing TV, China Yellow River TV and Zhejiang International Channel.
