Has anyone complained to the CRTC?
The general CRTC rule is that the BDU is only authorized to simsub within the grade B contour of the local station. There are some exceptions, such as Bell, which was granted an exemption from Day 1 because they didn't have the technology to overlay the feed based on location.
I recall reading a CRTC proceeding against a cable company for not following the rules, so there may be hope.
Has anyone that is affected filed a complaint with the CRTC? I haven't reread the entire thread, but I don't recall seeing a response from the CRTC.
