The CanCon is coming! The CanCon is coming! Or not. Today we discuss Bill C-10, An Act to amend the Broadcasting Act and to make related and consequential amendments to other Acts, phew!
Today’s guest Monica Auer, Executive Director of Canada’s Forum for Research and Policy in Communications (FRPC) strives mightily to explain broadcasting regulation in Canada and how the federal government wants to change it. What could go wrong? Turns out a lot, if you hurry to do it, have a very specific goal in mind but ignore the rest, and just rip the heart out of it. Surgery or a roadmap? You decide.
Also, we talk about hard questions to communications service providers about moving people against their will to paper billing and why the FRPC told the CRTC months ago that CBC’s Tandem service was an abominable snowman. Told you so.
