I was told at the time that, no, the CRTC had never tried, never asked for, and therefore never obtained that. My first question, therefore, is why wouldn't the CRTC ask?
You stated it yourself, that in other cases, and in the case of the Telecommunications Act with the “do not call” list, these tools were given to the CRTC as the act was being approved in Parliament. It's a matter of process, I suppose. Why wouldn't the CRTC put that request to the government?
