• Martin Champoux, Candidate for Drummond, Bloc Québécois
• Sandy Crawley, Green Party's shadow cabinet critic for Arts, Culture, and Heritage

Each party representative will have a total of 15 minutes to discuss four different themes:

• Growing the Canadian screen industries… Modernizing Canada’s broadcasting legislative framework in a climate of shrinking domestic production
• Investing in Canadian talent, Canadian voices
• Fostering diversity, equity and inclusion
• Adopting sustainable production practices
