I find the CRTC to be barely functioning in its role. I recently took their survey - "online questionnaire for use of telecommunications services" - on broadband internet services in Canada.A prime example in their failings is where they ask a question on who should be responsible ensuring / providing adequate broadband services to rural areas.Options were:1) government spending2) market demands3) a fund setup by CRTCMy opinion is option 4, the CRTC and government should force the main providers and companies to maintain a standard of service they provide. Record profits and price gouging on Canadians has allowed them to easily be able to afford this. No where in the world is there a country that pays so much for so little, with so few competition.
