Applebaum-Hebert report on federal cultural policy is released, proposing that the government put more money into the arts and suggesting the CBC, NFB, and the National Arts Centre cease producing their own films, except for CBC News, and buy from private or independent producers.

Also recommended: new tax and welfare laws recognizing the special employment of artists and performers, increased grants to art galleries for purchase of Canadian works, and creation of a new centre or gallery for contemporary Canadian art.
