The CRTC is having hearings today on the possibility of forcing internet service providers to provide Canadian content on-line.
As far as I'm concerned, this is outrageous.
There should be no CRTC regulation of the internet.
WRITE THE CRTC.
Now is the time to speak up VERY LOUDLY to make it known that you absolutely, positively oppose this measure.
Because once the CRTC regulates the internet, it's game over. We will go down that slippery slope.
Type in the relevant information. I know it's says "question", but the form is so dumb, it will not allow for comments about hearings.
Just type the "next" button and state your opinion.
I would say: short and sweet. Do not put a lot of detail. For instance, if you say "I don't want my tax dollars going towards this" they'll take it that you object on financial grounds-- but not on others.
Just say: do not regulate the internet. At all.
Now please pass on this information.
Now type the message right now. It won't take you more than 30 seconds.
And then put it on your blog. We need to get this out to as many people as possible.
