Canada, U.S. hold TV talks

Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission head Keith Spicer met with Attorney General Janet Reno and FCC chairman Reed Hundt Monday to discuss the CRTC’s tough new TV violence code.

Spicer’s D.C. trip comes as the U.S. Congress is weighing a number of bills designed to crack down on violent programming.

‘Sharing of views’

Spicer’s talks with Reno and Hundt were designed to provide a “sharing of views” on how Canadians are dealing with TV violence, according to a Canadian Embassy spokeswoman.

Last month, Canadian broadcasters agreed to an outright ban on the broadcast of gratuitous violence and agreed not to carry scenes of violence “suitable for adults” until 9 p.m.
