Yes, the Telecommunications Act charges us to ensure that we have a healthy, vibrant communications system that serves all Canadians. We also have direction from the government, as you know, to rely on market processes as much as possible and to only intervene when there is market failure.
With the structure of the Canadian market being, as I mentioned in my opening statement, essentially a duopoly between the telcos on one side and the cable companies on the other side, we came to the conclusion that to have some competition we needed mandated access. That's why we mandated access to the wholesalers. We mandated that it had to be at the same speed as what the big companies provide their own retail companies and it had to be at a discount so that they have a margin to compete.
We are fully aware that innovation happens at the margins, and the small players are probably the most innovative ones and the ones who come up, by necessity, with new ways. Therefore, we very much see it as part of our mandate to make sure that they are part of the market and have space to live in and function.
