The Montreal Media Policy Group is a collective of young academics, legal and industry representatives from the Montreal area, launched in November, 2005. This was an initiative of the newly established Beaverbrook Chair in Ethics, Media and Communications, Marc Raboy, and McGill PhD candidate Gregory Taylor. Though McGill-based, the group is designed to encompass not just the McGill scholarly community but the greater sphere of media activists, academics and practitioners in the wider Montreal region. Since the first meeting in November 2005, a solid core and changing cast have met regularly to discuss significant issues related to media governance.
