p2pnet view P2P | Freedom:- p2pnet reader G. Smith was moved to contact his local MP, Liberal Bonnie Crombie, when the news broke that the CRTC, created to “ensure that both the broadcasting and telecommunications systems serve the Canadian public”, was bending over backwards to ensure the Canadian public serves Bell Canada.
The bone of contention? ‘Metered internet usage’.
“Dear Mr. Smith”, came the reply, continuing >>>
Let me first apologize for the delay in this response; on behalf of Mrs. Crombie, thank you for contacting the office and sharing your important views on recent CRTC decisions.
Please accept this message as an acknowledgement of your email and that your concerns have been forwarded to Mrs. Crombie.
Your issues with the CRTC are of great concern to Mrs. Crombie and the Liberal Party. We will make every effort to address them thoroughly in the not-too-distant future.
In the meantime, thank you once again and please feel free to contact the office any time with matters pertaining to the federal government.
Office of Bonnie Crombie, M.P.
“Bell Canada believes it’s found a new, more effective way to milk Canadians, whom it regards as compliant cash-cows”, p2pnet posted on November 2, going on:
“Traffic throttling Mark II is on the way. And this time it’s apparently sanctioned by the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission).”
It’s been re-named ‘metered internet usage’.
Now, how distant is Crombie’s “not-too-distant future”, and what will the Liberal party’s efforts comprise?
