    https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/110.nsf/eng/00012.html#Toc26977811 I won't post the entire report, simply because it is huge! It is a very good read, however!! Final report January 2020 Letter to the Honourable Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry and the Honourable Minister of...

    Statement by Ian Scott, Chairperson and CEO of the CRTC, in response to the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review Panel’s Final Repor

    I have yet to read the entire report but a number of their key recommendations make absolute sense. They have noted a number of key areas that require urgent action and while recommending giving the CRTC more freedom to interpret legislation, they are also demanding more transparency...

    New safeguards now in place for Internet customers

    Really? This is about home internet service? ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THIS IS NEW!! 0 changes. I thought I was reading a (albeit outdated) addition to the wireless code but they are seriously trying to pass this off as some sort of strengthening of home internet services? All of these standards...

    Election 2019: Conservatives would also tax tech giants if elected

    Yes, let's completely alienate Canada's fastest growing industry so they move all operations outside of this country and take away all of those jobs that are being created.

    Official 2019 - 2020 Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

    Hey, usually they start the season with a bang and then fizzle out as the season goes on. Maybe they're trying a different strategy this year--suck at the beginning and then surprise everyone with a strong run at the end!! :p

    Montreal looks to unclog its streets with small electric courier vehicles

    A better move would simply to disallow all non-commercial traffic monday-friday in the downtown core--but that will never happen.

    Official 2019 - 2020 Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

    Ya, I haven't checked what it is in Montreal. I can usually find streams for any games I want to watch and for the most part really haven't watched much except for the world juniors the last few years anyways. Last year I was with Bell and got TSN just for the Christmas period but this year I...

    I ended up with Videotron with gigabit for $85/month no tv package though. I refuse to pay outrageous prices for something I never watch.

    CRTC orders Bell to not suspend Vidéotron roaming services

    Funny how Videotron has a spat with Bell over TV services and then Bell threatens to cut off their roaming agreements. Good for Videotron fighting them.

    Rogers says CRTC wholesale rates decision will have $140 million impact on business

    Oh wah wah, cry me an f'n river! They've been gouging and undercutting TPIA's and got caught with their hand in the cookie jar! Now, like the petulant 3year old, they are throwing a temper tantrum and are taking their ball home so no one else can play with it. These are the companiethat we...

    Bell, Rogers and Telus tie for Canada’s most trusted carrier: survey

    Just goes to show that people don't inform themselves very well.

    Ottawa partners with Telesat to bring high-speed internet to remote Canadian regions

    AWESOME! It is nice to see the government actually take the initiative instead of waiting for the current players to fulfill their obligations to the Canadian taxpayer. I wish the CRTC would stand up and take notice that the market is so badly under-served by the current providers that the...

    DAZN

    Not a review just yet, just wondering other's thoughts really. I am doing the trial right now and it seems like a pretty good deal for only $20/month. I'm not a big sports guy but have recently returned to watching boxing lately and they definitely have a lot of content for that. My 4K Tv...

    No Longer a “Proposed” Telecom Policy Direction: Government Resets Canadian Telecom Policy With Emphasis on Broader Approach to Competition

    Well at least if Mr. Scott refuses to do anything, the government is now forcing his hand. I still feel the best avenue would be to replace him as CRTC chair immediately but this is a definite step in the right direction!!

    Chris Seidl to the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology

    Why is it that we are suddenly seeing all of these PR releases from the CRTC when, on the other hand, they have taken absolutely 0 actions on the most important decisions on their docket and have not only closed the door, but completely slammed it in the face of each and every Canadian in...

    Rogers Calls for Expansion of Media Bailout to Cover Broadcast Organizations…and Thinks Netflix Should Pay For It

    Yet another corporate welfare scam because companies refuse to change their archaic business model. This is even worse because Rogers is going on the attack against a company the initiated technological change in their landscape and delivered a model that customers want. Hey Rogers, instead of...
