Subject: We need your help -- CRTC Ruling would challenge telecom competition

(Une version française de ce couriel sera envoyé plus tard 


We need your help -- we need you to lend us your voice and state 
your opinion on a recent CRTC decision that could allow the 
incumbent phone companies (such as Bell and Telus) to 
discontinue offering services (Internet and phone) to wholesale 
providers which in effect would eliminate competition in Canada.

With no competition to help fuel the market; Internet innovation 
could come to stand still and prices for broadband access could 
skyrocket out of control. The incumbents would also be free to 
do with the lines as they please.  This would open up future 
privacy invading Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technologies and 
direct marketing/advertising based on *you* and *your families* 
internet activities and habits.

They could also use this same technology to turn the Internet 
into a pay-per-website service the same way that TV is a 
pay-per-channel service. Can you imagine a world where you have 
to pay to use the Google website to search for information? 
Then, if you find what you are looking for you may be restricted 
to the content because your ISP doesn't have a "peering" 
agreement with said company.

Please help us stop this major potential catastrophe.
