Canadian Finance Minister Ralph Goodale has made good on Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin's promise to restore coin to the Canadian Television Fund, hacked from Canadian $100 million to $56 million last year. In the federal budget unveiled on March 23, 2004 afternoon, Goodale said the fund, one of the key sources of cash for the local television production industry, would be returned to its former level and Goodale pledged to provide the same amount for 2005. This is a dramatic reversal of the cuts under former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien that were greeted with protest from film and television industry leaders across the country.
