No it does not. The largest national producer of video content is almost certainly the CBC, which gets a billion dollars a year to compete with the producers dependent upon private investment rather than raiding the public's wallets.
Recently, it has decided that a billion dollars a year is not enough, and is asking for another 400 million a year.
This is also a country that has a large levy on blank CDs on the grounds that you might put music on them. In theory, this is to go to copyright holders... but the rules are biased towards paying large media companies rather than independent artists and small labels.
It is time to get the government out of targeted taxes and specific subsidies.
