If the "arms-length CRTC" wants to make some code, fine. But they shouldn't be meddling in the affairs of provincial consumer protection legislation of any province. Be it Manitoba, PEI or Quebec.

PIAC is a sell out.

Russell Mcormond makes the case as well in the comment section of Peter Nowak's blog:

reply to hm
The CWTA stated that this new code should over-ride and supersede any provincial Consumer Protection regulations.

For example, some provinces has strict Consumer Protection regulations that prevent Bell and Rogers from automatically renewing contracts. This would see this eliminated if PIAC and the CWTA have their way.

People think that's right?


CWTA is stating, more or less, to hell with Quebec Provincial Consumer Protect laws.

Commissioner stated, Quebecor will be bringing more up on Friday.

CWTA wants Anything that touches telecom to follow new code and not Consumer Protection laws.

Commissioner stated, Quebec threatened to withdraw from the fed code in it's entirety if they lessen Quebec Consumer Protection rights.

What have the other Prov's stated? Anything?

Did I read that correctly? They've abandoned the 30 day notice requirement? The proverbial sacrificial lamb. It costs their nothing go do this, but gives the aura of " compromising".


Yeah CCTS already ruled against the 30-day thing about a year ago. And this is one of the problems with the CCTS. They *do not* put all their rulings out in the clear as they happen for all to see and be aware of. They hide rulings in a yearly report, those who bother reading the tiny detail they put out caught on to it. Otherwise people don't know.

This is what happens when the industry controls the arena (the CCTS).

Commissioner Molnar just rips Rogers bullshit so elegantly, and calls them out on it nicely. Aside from the CRTC chair, she is the one most on the ball. She is good.
