Information & Ethics committee  We're certainly a voice in that discussion. I don't see us being focused as a regulator.

Information & Ethics committee  We came up with our basic telecom service decision back in December 2016, when we set the universal service objective.

Information & Ethics committee  I think it's definitely worth looking at. As I mentioned, from our perspective we've had the flexibility and the powers that are needed to introduce that. All of our decisions have been unanimous, and I've been involved in all of them over the years. We've based them on the rec

Information & Ethics committee  I probably shouldn't comment. Obviously, it's an issue for Trade, Global Affairs, Industry Canada, and others that may be involved in those discussions.

Information & Ethics committee  We obviously want to have competition sufficient to protect the interests of users and to have affordable and innovative services. Our approach has been to base it on facilities-based competition. That's where you do have the two main providers in most markets, not in the rural a

Information & Ethics committee  As I mentioned, we're talking about wholesale services. When we set any tariffs, when we look at them for the wholesale side, we look first at all of the costs that go into a provider's network and make sure they can recoup those costs. Then we look at potentially a markup. That'

Information & Ethics committee  Under our regulations, the traffic management practices adopted by ISPs have to be transparent.

Information & Ethics committee  The number of complaints is decreasing every year. I think providers will want to offer competitive services that are of the best quality possible. They do not want there to be any control of content or traffic. Increasing competition might in fact lead to a reduction in complain

Christopher Seidl

Information & Ethics committee  Absolutely. That is another reason we decided that all communities in Canada must have access to quality service. We decided that universal service for all Canadians, a landline and a wireless network, is a necessity in all homes and in the streets, for safety reasons and all oth

Christopher Seidl

Information & Ethics committee  I know the government is planning to launch a review of both the Broadcasting Act and the Telecommunications Act, and there'll be an opportunity to look at changes to them.
