About CPAC: 
CPAC was created by the cable industry in the Fall of 1992 as the Cable
Parliamentary Channel, an experimental service whose primary mandate was to
carry the House of Commons. In 1995, we were licensed by the CRTC as a
national programming undertaking, and in 1996 we re-launched as the Cable
Public Affairs Channel to reflect an expanded schedule of unique public
affairs programming.

This new one-hour magazine show will present an informative mix of
documentary reports, visual essays, discussions and backgrounders on
current events – all with VisionTV Insight’s distinctive focus on the
ethical and spiritual dimension. 
“In this new format, VisionTV Insight will bring viewers an even stronger
focus on the heart of the story, and on stories with heart – looking at why
and how things happen, and the effect in human terms.” (Executive Producer
Rita Deverell)
