Bernier's Troubling Stand on Net Neutrality

Prof. Geist writes;

"Since being named Minister of Industry last February, Maxime Bernier has set his sights on reforming Canada's telecommunications laws. In only twelve months, he has overruled the CRTC on its plans for Internet telephony regulation and introduced a sea change in the CRTC's approach, mandating that the Commission "rely on market forces to the maximum extent feasible and to regulate telecommunications services only when necessary." Indeed, the emphasis on market forces has been so great, that the Minister from the Beauce might be better characterized as the Minister from Bell."
