Television has changed the world. The time has come to change television. ICTV‑MTL is composed of a group of people who came together out of concern over the current state of television in this country, and more particularly, in the Greater Montreal Region. One need not be an expert to glance over the media landscape and to quickly realize that a handful of private entities are in charge of our airwaves. The dream is to break this monopoly and to build a television station run, by and for, our communities.
This act of imagination becoming reality is not only vital for the strengthening and empowerment of our communities but is also a critical condition for the improvement of democracy.

« Montréal et Canada ont absolument besoin de ce type de télévision reflétant le caractère pluraliste de la principale ville du Québec. »
