Canadian Regulators: Canadian Porn Isn’t Canadian Enough

The agency that appears to be Canada’s equivalent to the Federal Communications Commission is apparently concerned that Canadian erotica channels are not broadcasting enough Canadian porn:

For failing to broadcast sufficient levels of Canadian-made pornography — and failing to close-caption said pornography properly — a trio of Toronto-based erotica channels has earned a reprimand from the Canadian Radio-television & Telecommunications Commission.

Wednesday, the CRTC issued a broadcast notice saying AOV Adult Movie Channel, XXX Action Clips and the gay-oriented Maleflixxx were all failing to reach the required 35% threshold for Canadian content.

Based on a 24-hour broadcast schedule, that translates to about 8.5 hours of Canadian erotica a day.

Left unstated is whether this means more maple syrup, or more hockey.

    @Andy:

    You beat me to it.

    On the other hand, I once read that the definition of a true Canadian was someone who knows how to make love in a canoe. That may be the missing element.

    @PJ: As Doug pointed out in the underskirt photo thing, the law is the law. In this case, domestic production must be protected.

    Not speaking from experience at all here. I would think that would be a horrible idea. But, what do I know?

    This might be the most Canadian thing I’ve read all week.

    How can a nation that features the beaver (castor canadensis, after all) feel inadequate about its contribution to sex?

    Strangely, most mainstream adult magazines including those by HUSTLER and others are all printed in Canada these days.
