GORMLEY - BRIAN LILLEY - OCTOBER 23

A number of Canadian newspaper publishers, including Postmedia, the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Winnipeg Free Press, Black Press, and more, are calling for federal regulation to ensure revenue from news stories goes to the creators and not to tech giants like Facebook and Google, where so much news is shared. According to the papers, Facebook and Google rake in 75% of Canada’s digital ad revenue but don’t produce the work that's generating the interest and traffic. Toronto Sun columnist Brian Lilley says the papers aren't asking for government intervention or prosecution, "just an attempt to level the playing field," and he joins Gormley to tell us more.
