"The current government is clearly biased against the CRTC and this whole deal really seems fishy to me"
This ruling is only a day old, has anyone actually had the time to do the analysis and determine that is actually the case?
In general I have a problem with quasi-government regulatory bodies like the CRTC - they usually end up serving the industry they are suppose to regulate. They are stacked with appointees from the industry who rotates between these bodies and the industry, and the consumer gets the shaft. An example other than the CRTC is the Ontario Securities Commission. Like the CRTC, they have the authority to send people to jail, but they have never done anything for the consumer. Unless you are a very wealthy investor, the commission you pay today is the same as 20 years ago, while in the U.S. they are significantly less. And those who have had their investment accounts stolen (literally) cannot find support form the OSC who is suppose to protect them.
Bodies like the CRTC is suppose to make them independent from the politicians. But from a consumer perspective, the industry is a far worse enemy than the policitans.
