. Thanks, that is pretty much what i was going to say. His proof talked about everywhere BUT Canada.
example is in my link that even with blocking, the putlocker site usage for the UK and Australia is higher than in Canada.
"For example, putlocker.is identified by MUSO as a sample streaming site. Indeed, the site is on the blocklist in both Australia and the United Kingdom (both established through court rulings, not the administrative process envisioned by the Bell coalition). SimilarWeb has the latest data for site visits to Putlocker.is with Canada ranking below both Australia and the UK as a traffic source, despite inclusion on a blocklist in the latter two countries. Canada is also declining faster as a traffic source than Australia, the UK, and the United States (which is easily the top source of traffic)."
Piracy is down in Canada according to this https://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...300082007.html
"In under 13 weeks CEG TEK has effected massive changes in the Canadian market on behalf of our clients. Peer-to-peer (P2P) piracy of our clients' content have dropped by the following amounts:
Bell Canada - 69.6% decrease
Telus Communications - 54.0% decrease
Shaw Communications - 52.1% decrease
TekSavvy Solutions - 38.3% decrease
Rogers Cable - 14.9% decrease"
wondering if they are getting their "facts" from the duplicitous liars at Bell? for example
"In 2016, Bell told cabinet that its scale of investment in fibre would be affected by a CRTC decision even as a company executive told a business audience that Bellís plan was to eliminate their copper network altogether. Indeed, then-chair Jean-Pierre Blais noticed it too:
Oddly enough, as they were saying one thing to us about slowing down investments, they were having a completely different dialogue with the investors and saying quite the opposite. I donít know what they think we read and donít read, but Iíve got some very, very smart people working for me at the CRTC and we read investor reports, we read whatís in the news, we know whatís happening. So it goes straight to credibility when you make arguments in front of us one day and take a completely different position when youíre in an investor or shareholder call."
