Communications issues have been in the political spotlight in recent weeks with the controversial CRTC decision to reverse a pricing decison on wholesale broadband that swiftly led to calls for the resignation of Commission Chair Ian Scott as well as the ongoing battle over Bill C-10, which envisions granting extensive new powers to the CRTC. Konrad von Finckenstein is a former CRTC chair, having led the Commission during a similarly contentious time during debates over net neutrality. He joins the Law Bytes podcast to talk about the CRTC, the recent decisions, and what he thinks a better approach to Bill C-10 would look like.
