OpenMedia calls on new chair of CRTC to prioritize competition, affordability, and everyday people’s needs
Canada’s Internet is dangerously adrift. OpenMedia’s letter to new CRTC chair Vicky Eatrides urges her to put us back on track.
Our “Minister of Collapse” must undo this affordability disaster of his own making.
This is our once-in-5-years shot to appoint a CRTC Chair who stands up for the people, NOT Big Telecom.
We need a CRTC chair without ties to Big Telecom.
On July 17th, OpenMedia placed a full-page ad in the Ottawa Citizen inviting CRTC Chair Ian Scott for a beer to discuss Internet regulation — just like he did with Bell!
It’s a problem when the CRTC chair uses industry talking points when calling for greater “flexibility” for Net Neutrality. Internet users in Canada can’t let this fly.
The CRTC Chair has recently expressed a lack of commitment to robust Net Neutrality protections in Canada, which raises serious concerns. Here's how we fight back:
Advocates stunned by CRTC’s decision to cut its own Internet speed targets in half for new Broadband Fund
Canadians are calling on Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains to send the decision back to the CRTC for reconsideration immediately
"With legal options for content delivery on the upswing, effective tools for curbing piracy already in place, and illegal sharing on the downward slide, Bell's website blocking proposal is like using a machine gun to kill a mosquito."
