Firstly students are being engulfed by seductive screen time to a point that we know their brain and mind are adversely effected. Given this subjecting them to the level of "if bleeds, it leads journalism" takes them so far beyond a healthy childhood it makes me weep for their tormented future through this kind of exporsure.

Fill our minds with something positive and encouraging. Stop controlling your people with fear and deadening their minds with gossip. Canadians are better than this! Our children deserve hope not terror.

I don't think you need to show real people being gunned down or blown up on the tv news. If people want to see that they can go to you tube or news internet sites that aren't likely to be viewed by young kids. It just seems unnecessary.

This is a responsible request, money should not dictate what is good behaviour nor make allowances for bad behaviour. As a society, we need to grow up.

Too much time is spent dwelling and detailing events on visual presentations, especially on television. They appear at unexpected times, but even during newscasts, our society would benefit from hearing about more positive events. To be sure, there are probably times when we need information, but we can utilize other formats to get more details. The constant negativity is too much for adults, and untenable for children. They need to feel safe, as we all do.

this is just wrong, kids need protecting from faceless multi nationals who only care about profit - CRTC have a legal and moral responsibility to do what is right

I'm signing because the amount of violence sickens me. Children are precious and should never be exposed to the sickening level of obscene violence that is present in media.
