 Beginner's guide to the CRTC: BeatnikPad Writing
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is once again in the news with the announcement of yet another mega media merger.
The CRTC was established in 1968 by Parliament as a federal communications watchdog.
Its mission statement says the regulator's mandate is to "Ensure that Canadian communications contribute fairly and equitably to Canada's economic, social and cultural prosperity." These goals were to be met through a careful mix of regulation, supervision and dialogue with the public.

 Computing Canada: CRTC decision lets ISPs resell fast Net service: Competitors really want access to facilities that ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The CRTC came to different conclusions about what might be termed the "wholesale" version of Internet services, or what the CRTC called "access services" - the services that connect customers to a network through which they may reach the service provider of their choice.
In effect, the CRTC seems to be saying that, while the market was initially competitive enough not to require resale of retail services, the market now, even though more competitive, is not sufficiently competitive to continue to justify the absence of resale.
However, the CRTC does not offer any guidance as to why it is introducing the condition of mandatory resale now, other than by referring in passing to the public interest.

In the materials it prepared for the hearings, the CRTC recognized that a major part of the solution to television violence is education about the negative impact it has on children, and awareness of what citizens can do about it.
The CRTC should ask all members of the television industry to contribute to a Media Literacy Education Fund, to support the development of media education materials.
The CRTC should require cable operators and broadcasters to give blanket permission to educators and media literacy teachers to videotape programs for use as teaching tools in the classroom.

 CRTC
In July of this year, the CRTC solicited public suggestions relating to the regulation of the internet and other "new media." Some of the responses contained language that must have shocked the CRTC's staid technocrats: "Get out of my computer you jerks" wrote one respondent.
While any putative attempt by the CRTC to regulate the internet would be sure to cause outrage, very few Canadians have raised a voice of protest over the new and very real restrictions on Canadian radio content and split-run magazines.
Under the CRTC's Television Broadcasting Regulations currently under review, 60 percent of the programming shown by any Canadian TV station must consist of "Canadian programs." To the extent that they cause stations to involuntarily modify their programming schedules, the CRTC's Canadian content requirements (often referred to as "Cancon") constitute an indirect form of censorship.

 Real Women of Canada - Newsletters - DIGITAL TV, PRIDE VISION AND THE CRTC
In short, the CRTC now assumes that Canadians cannot be trusted to select the correct television programs and it behaves like a paternalistic, irascible parent with a duty to make these decisions for us.
The CRTC immediately jumped on Shaw Communications, ruling that it was discriminating against PrideVision and ordered it to include the channel in its free viewing.
One unfortunate consequence of the CRTC's decision is that the PrideVision channel is now shown free in the 2.2 million households equipped with a digital set-top box during the 3-month trial.

Cybersurf's announcement is based on the CRTC's decision released December 23, 2003, in which the CRTC responded to Cybersurf's complaint about the failure of Shaw to deliver on its regulatory and contractual obligation to permit Cybersurf to provide High Speed Internet access service to Western Canadians under a Third Party Internet Access Agreement ("TPIA").
Cybersurf originally submitted the aforementioned complaint to the CRTC on June 16, 2003, after Shaw advised Cybersurf it was unable to provide the contracted-for service.
Pursuant to Telecom Decision CRTC 2003-87, Shaw is now obliged to make High Speed Internet service in all respects identical to Shaw's service available for resale to Cybersurf to retail as a branded ISP service, at a 25% discount from Shaw's lowest retail rate.

As a result of the advent of closed captioning on television, advocacy groups for the blind appearing before the CRTC have argued that 10% of broadcasting should be described.
