Well said James. I saw an article on Globe and Mail this weekend where
CRTC is actually opposing Globalive entry to Canada's telecom market.
Apparently, there is a Canadian law that prohibit foreign companies
from owning telcom companies in Canada. That would be okay if
Canadian Telcom companies are working toward Canada's well being, but
to me, that seems not to be the case.
The odd thing though is its CRTC who are opposed to the idea. Could
understand it if it was Rogers or Bell who do not like the idea. How
is CRTC officials elected?
