Not too sure what to think...

Perhaps it is time to dissolve the CRTC as its usefulness has worn out.

Wow, this is such a disgrace. I'm ashamed to be in this country. It's a sad state when this government is so blantant in such a decision. It goes to show you the majority of our citizens really do not know much about how they are abused when it comes to technology.

CRTC... bought and paid for by Bell/Rogers. Taxpayers be damned.

Its many levels above the FCC. Forcing American ILECs to lease out their DSLAM ports and transport DSL traffic to the ISP's datacenter is unheard of in the USA. Even RT customers can get competitor DSL. In the USA you have to install your own RT/DSLAM to get competitor DSL, no exceptions, and ISPs must figure out how to transport traffic from the CO to their data center.

This isn't accurate, aside from the newer networks that Qwest and AT&T are putting in, independent ISP's can access customers anywhere the retail side can.
