CPAC - Canadian Public Affairs Channel

CPAC – For many years, CPAC (the Cable Public Affairs Channel) was the only place to watch Parliamentary proceedings live on television, unedited and without commercials. On the tv airwaves, it still is. CPAC was created in 1992 as a joint venture by the CBC and Canada's commercial broadcasters and is distributed via cable, on air on their website. CPAC's election coverage includes electoral maps, updates from the leaders' tours, key speeches and special coverage by CPAC's team of reporters.
