The still Useless CRTC

Due to pressure from the Government NEXT THE STILL CLEARLY USELESS  CRTC REPORT finds that the  Canadian telecom companies still use misleading sales tactics,

The CRTC in an inquiry has confirmed allegations Canada’s telecommunications industry used unacceptable sales practices that misled consumers and harmed vulnerable members of the public. The commission says the misleading and aggressive practices exist in all types of sales channels, including in stores, online, over the telephone and at homes when companies conduct door-to-door sales campaigns. The report said many Canadians stated that they have been subjected to misleading or aggressive sales practices by the service providers, with many of them reporting that these instances occurred recently.“It also said the record shows the most vulnerable members of the public are seniors, people with disabilities and Canadians whose first language isn’t English or French, But the 41-page report didn’t identify the main perpetrators  by design.

Telecom regulator looked into the issue after the CBC reported the misleading, high-pressure tactics by Telecom firms.

Why did  it takes YET months  and months even  for the CRTC to deal with a clearly open and shut case.   Bell Canada gets the most complaints to the industry’s ombudsman, and Rogers usually gets the second-largest amount . Still  there are valid concerns about how quickly, or ever the CRTC will act on   the issues identified by the inquiry.

THE FINAL RESULTS,  a call to hold a public inquiry into sales practices at Canada’s major telecommunications service providers on the heels of more and more past  allegations of wrongdoing inside the industry was next falsely fulfilled by the CRTC with no real positive tangible results because the definitely corrupted CRTC clearly sleeps with the enemies of  citizens is not anew unacceptable norm, where Corruption is still a normal operational manner of the Liberal governments now too in Canada, They all first should get their own houses in order, and stop the lies, false misleading advertising, bribes, kickbacks and pirating software, films themselves as   do   as well..

TekSavvy Solutions Inc. has lodged a complaint with the CRTC, saying that critical statistical information compiled by the federal telecommunications regulator was omitted from last year’s edition of an annual industry report. TekSavvy says the 2018 Communications Monitoring Report issued Dec. 20 didn’t follow the CRTC’s usual practices for reporting things like consumer appetite for faster Internet, capital spending by independent ISPs and their market share.

TORONTO — The country’s independent Internet service providers were hit Tuesday by a regulatory ruling allowing major network owners such as BCE Inc. to charge “significantly” higher rates for wholesale Internet access. Though affecting less than 10% of Canadian retail Web users, the decision holds broader implications for competition in the sector if some smaller Internet Service Providers (ISPs) cannot afford the hikes and are squeezed out of the market. http://business.financialpost.com/2011/11/15/crtc-offers-compromise-plan-on-internet-billing/

“Canadians have been very clear in expressing their concerns about earlier UBB decisions,” Paradis said. http://www.montrealgazette.com/technology/Government+study+CRTC+ruling+Internet+billing/5718561/story.html

 

The first thing we Canadians need to do is get rid of the CRTC . They serve no purpose at all for us Canadians , its tell to get rid of them   It is about time the consumers are protected from greedy ma Bell too and we get real Competition, close down the useless CRTC  too.

It is too often clear as to how many corporations, politicians, civil servants, public servants   at the municipal, provincial, federal levels now are corrupt, and do lie, slander, they do even distort, twist the truth basically trying to win elections or to stay in power at all costs. It is  very despicable how many politicians.corporations still  do not only lie but they falsely think that because their own lies are now in the past they are forgotten and forgiven and they wrongfully deny any personal accountability, transparency thus. ..You can tell what a corporation or a politician is really like by not what they do, even say or the promises they say rather by what they do actually next, now, and once a liar and slanderer they will always be a liar and a slanderer next as well. A good tree brings forth good fruit and a bad tree brings forth bad fruit next still as well.
