Media Divides: Communication Rights and the Right to Communicate in Canada

By Marc Raboy, Jeremy Shtern - 2010

The challenge of this study (2010) is to hold Canada accountable to its own high standard by examining the links between rhetoric and action and to determine how the actions of our government reflect on the claims that it makes about its role in realizing communication rights. In assessing the realization of communication rights in Canada, however, we have tried to be sensitive not only to gross abuses of government power but also to the more subtle nuances around how public policies, the manner in which they are implemented, and the actions of various stakeholders affect the realization of communication rights. We also aim to situate the Canadian debate in a broader, global context.

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
