Canada’s public broadcaster has launched a new initiative to advance the diversity of its homegrown programming lineup while appearing at the Banff World Media Festival.

On Friday, the CBC said it will require that at least 30 percent of all key creative roles on its new original scripted and unscripted series commissioned from indie producers must be held by people who are Indigenous, Black, People of Color or persons with disabilities.

“We know we have work to do to better represent the voices and lived experiences of creative talent from Indigenous, Black and all racially diverse communities as well as those with disabilities, all underrepresented groups that are significantly underemployed in the Canadian industry,” Sally Catto, general manager, entertainment, factual & sports at the CBC said in a statement.

Ron MacLean apologizes for “testing positive for something” comment, says he meant rum, but is “deeply sorry”

  Ron MacLean apologizes for “testing positive for something” comment, says he meant rum, but is “deeply sorry” There’s a long history of people in sports media saying something that gets a strong negative response, then offering a “sorry if you were offended” half-apology, and sometimes even blaming outside factors such as blood-sugar levels. By contrast, the apology CBC/Sportsnet hockey coverage host Ron MacLean offered Wednesday stands out. In a statement on Twitter, Read more The post Ron MacLean apologizes for “testing positive for something” comment, says he meant rum, but is “deeply sorry” appeared first on Awful Announcing.

Advances in scripting theory and advances in support for student-driven knowledge construction call for a reconsideration of long-standing issues of guidance, control, and agency. This symposium undertakes a fresh analysis based on the relations between two widely adopted approaches that may be poles apart but arguably viewed as variations within a common applied epistemological framework. Scripts for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) offer socio-cognitive scaffolding for learners to engage in collaborative activities that are considered beneficial for learning.

For scripted drama, comedy and kids live action series, the 30 percent requirement will apply to all writer, director and principal performer roles, and will be stipulated in all contracts with indie producers. The CBC initiative follows a series of diversity commitments made by Canadian broadcasters in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement following the murder of George Floyd in the U.S.

It also comes after the pubcaster faced controversies around representation on two of its original series commissioned from indie producers, the indigenous drama Trickster and the Kim’s Convenience comedy, which now streams on Netflix.

Canadian film director Michelle Latimer apologized for wrongly claiming Indigenous family roots in a Quebec Algonquin community after helming the first season of Trickster, a CBC TV drama about an Indigenous teen struggling to support his dysfunctional family as myth, magic, and monsters seep into his life. The controversy around Latimer’s indigenous ancestry sparked criticism from the Canadian film industry, where generous subsidies are increasingly on offer to First Nations filmmakers amid an industry reckoning.

GOP Rep. Byron Donalds calls CBC silence on membership delay 'off-putting'

  GOP Rep. Byron Donalds calls CBC silence on membership delay 'off-putting' “If my positions and my support of President Trump is a problem for them, let them state that on the record,” he said. Donalds brushed aside Trump’s history of incendiary comments on the subject of race and the experience of African Americans, saying they have “nothing to do with this discussion at all.” “As a Black man in America, I’m allowed to have my own thoughts on who I choose to support and who I choose not to support,” he said. “This is whether the ideology of somebody who is conservative is welcome in the Congressional Black Caucus. It's really that simple.

In order to have a public- key directory, there needs to be an AUTHORITY that maintains a directory with an ENTRY for each participant. From there, each participant must register a public key with the directory authority, and they may be able to replace this existing public key with a new one at any time. The X.509 is part of the X.500 series that defines a directory service. The directory is, in effect, a server or distributed set of servers that maintain a database of information about users.

And in social media posts, two stars of CBC’s Kim’s Convenience comedy — including Marvel StudiosShang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu — shared behind-the-scenes experiences of working on a show they claim suffered from diversity issues, unfair pay and racist storylines on season five.

The CBC’s new diversity commitment comes ahead of a 2021 Fall and Winter season filled with diversity-themed series like Coroner, Diggstown, The Porter, Pretty Hard Cases, Run the Burbs and Sort Of.
