Copps answers Manley challenge, finds cash for TV fund:

quote:
Copps told The Globe and Mail that she has developed a plan that will see the [Canadian Television Fund] increase to $205 million, from its $75 million budget.

"I said I was going to try and find a solution by Friday and I have," Copps told The Globe and Mail.

She said some of the new money comes from the fund's reserve, from Telefilm Equity Participation money and from the private sector - through increased satellite and cable revenues.


So what does this mean to all those on-the-bubble shows? And, much more importantly, how can I get a piece of this?
