Ottawa, Ontario November 18, 2014
Thank you, Mr. Chairman. My name is Christianne Laizner. I am the Senior General Counsel and Executive Director of the Legal sector of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). With me today is Chris Seidl, the CRTC's Executive Director, Telecommunications. We are here today to answer your questions concerning Bill C-43, the Budget Implementation Act, No. 2, which proposes to grant the CRTC expanded tools and responsibilities. The CRTC is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal that regulates Canada's telecommunications and broadcasting sectors. We operate in a transparent manner, and with the goal of upholding the public interest, so that Canadians have access to a world-class communication system. Our decisions are based on the evidence provided to us by the individuals, companies and organizations—including some on this panel—that participate in our public proceedings. Mr. Chairman, we recognize that this committee must complete its review of Bill C-43 quickly, and we are happy to accommodate its schedule. We would ask the committee, however, to keep in mind that our responsibilities as a regulatory body set us apart from the other members of this panel. Let me now turn to Bill C-43. As you know, this bill proposes to amend the Broadcasting Act and the Telecommunications Act to expand the powers of the CRTC. We believe that three of these amendments in particular will greatly enhance our ability to achieve the objectives Parliament has entrusted to us. The first would allow the CRTC to issue monetary penalties to any company that violates the rules of the Telecommunications Act. Mr. Chairman, this is an important addition to the CRTC's toolkit. By granting us the power to issue monetary penalties, Bill C-43 would give us a new tool that would essentially act as a deterrent to anyone wanting to breach the legislation or our regulations. Let me be clear for a moment on our use of monetary penalties. It is not our aim to turn to these penalties first. Our experience enforcing the National Do Not Call List and Canada's anti-spam legislation reminds us that the best enforcement approach should be determined by the particular facts of a case. Sometimes education or a warning may bring about compliance. Other times, a more forceful approach is needed. The option to use monetary penalties to promote compliance gives us greater flexibility to tailor the right enforcement approach to each situation. I will now ask my colleague, Mr. Seidl, to address the other proposed amendments. Mr. Chairman, I would like to begin by discussing the proposal to give the CRTC the authority to impose conditions on companies that resell telecommunications services provided to them by other carriers. Currently, we do not have direct jurisdiction over these companies to require them to, for example, provide emergency 9-1-1 services. We impose public-interest regulatory requirements on the carriers whose services they resell, and we look to the Canadian carriers to enforce these requirements with respect to the resellers. Bill C-43 would allow us to regulate these resellers directly. That is an important change. It means that the CRTC can extend the same safeguards to Canadians across the country, regardless of the type of service provider they choose. Finally, Bill C-43 would enable us to disclose the commercially sensitive information we receive to the Commissioner of Competition. By giving the Commissioner access to confidential information, he and his staff will likely be able to participate more meaningfully in our public proceedings. This, in turn, would give us a more complete public record upon which to base our decisions. The CRTC takes pride in the role it plays in regulating Canada's broadcasting and telecommunications sectors. And we are ready to apply the new responsibilities provided to us under Bill C-43 to further uphold the public interest. We would now be pleased to answer your questions. That being said, there are a number of ongoing proceedings before the CRTC. Mr. Chairman, I hope the committee members will understand that, depending on the question, our answers will necessarily be limited in order to maintain the integrity of those proceedings. Thank you. - 30 - Contacts Follow us on Twitter: @CRTCeng https://twitter.com/CRTCeng Media Relations: Media Relations http://support.crtc.gc.ca/CRTCSubmissionMU/forms/Mediarelations.aspx?lang=e, Tel: 819-997-9403, Fax: 819-997-4245 General Inquiries: Tel: 819-997-0313, TDD: 819-994-0423, Fax: 819-994-0218 Toll-free # 1-877-249-CRTC (2782) TDD - Toll-free # 1-877-909-CRTC (2782) Ask a question or make a complaint https://services.crtc.gc.ca/pub/rapidsccm/Default-Defaut.aspx
Mandy, 15, White:
I was born with a heart murmur. When I was 9 and playing soccer with the boys at school, I had my first heart attack. I have had 7 heart attacks since then and I live as an in-patient at Sick Kid’s Hospital. I go to the school at the hospital, my parents and sister come to visit me, but the doctors say I will not live to be an adult. My entire body is in pain. The doctors and nurses inject me with needles every hour of my life. I don’t have friends, I am too busy being sick. I don’t have a boyfriend, I am sick all the time. I don’t want to die in pain. I wish to God I could be normal and healthy, but maybe in Heaven I can be. The preacher comes to speak to me and he says there is a Heaven. The preacher had me memorize John 3:16 – “for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” I just want my parents to allow me to die since I know I will any way. This life is Hell for me. I want to go to Heaven. I want to live in Heaven. There really is no hope. Read the rest of this entry »

21 City Canadian Tour of Canada 300 Starts February 2nd
NORTH RUSTICO, PE, Jan. 13, 2015 /CNW/ – A new national conversation about what we hope our country could be in 150 years begins February 2, 2015. Sparked by nine newly commissioned plays, Canadians’ hopes for our country’s future will be captured on video at 21 locations around the country and shared on Canada 300.ca.
Prince Edward Island Premier Robert Ghiz noted, “In 2014, Prince Edward Islanders celebrated the 150th anniversary of the conversations which began our country. Now, Islanders invite all Canadians to express their hopes for our shared future. Through an innovative use of art and technology, PEI’s Watermark Theatre will inspire Canadians to express their dreams for what our country could be on its 300th birthday, 150 years from now.”
Nine new plays will play three performances in 21 cities. The first audience in each location will be comprised of invited community builders; the second one will be comprised of invited student community builders. The third performance is for the general public.
The very short plays are written by exceptional playwrights from around Canada. They include Governor General Award winners like Kevin Loring and emerging theatre sensations like Melanie Léger. All performances will be available in English or in French.
The five actors, Richard Beaune, Shiong-En Chan, Eloi Hoimer, Malube and Josée Young, are fluently bilingual. Watermark Theatre actor and director Robert Tsonos directs the plays in both languages. Award winner Jackie Chandesigns the set, Laura Gardener helms the costumes. Internationally acclaimed Canadian music director, Boko Suzuki will create a new score for the plays.
Audience ideas sparked by the plays will be posted at canada300.ca where the conversation will continue with contributions from Canadians everywhere.
“Why should theatre spark the national conversation? Because to dream about the next 150 years, some imagination is needed. And theatre is an art form which specializes in sparking people’s imagination,” noted the project leaderDuncan McIntosh, Artistic Director of Watermark Theatre. “Canadians need a place to express our big ideas for the future: Ideas bigger than the ones that fit into a four year election cycle or a 24 hours news cycle. Canada 300 is the place to express them.”
The project is funded by the Province of Prince Edward Island, the Government of Canada, The Palmer Family Foundation, Eastlink, Long Run Explorations, Sunrise Group of Companies and Louis (Lou) W. MacEachern.
The project will culminate at the J.S. Palmer Conference in September, 2015, where one representative from each community visited will be invited to Charlottetown to contribute to the first conversation of Canada’s next 150 years.
Canada 300, produced by Max Reimer, has been guided by a circle of elders which include Maria Campbell, OC; ,Paule Gauthier, PC, OC, OQ, QC; Aldéa Landry, PC, CM, QC; Paul Martin, PC CC; Ruben Nelson and Thomas H.B. Symons, CC, OOnt FRSC.
The plays were selected from a national call for plays which received over 100 submissions. The circle of artists who chose the plays were Sonja Smits, Tanya Davis, Jackson Davies, Jane Hilderman, Tom Jackson, Alain Jean andPamela Sinha.
The first performance/conversation will be held on Monday, February 2, 2015 in the Théâtre Petit Champlain inQuebec City. This will be followed by performances in the next two weeks in St John’s (LSPU Hall) and Corner Brook(Arts and Culture Centre) and Iqaluit (Joamie Ilinniarvik School). 17 performances follow until May 9th, 2015.
Nominate yourself or someone you admire to receive an invitation, or buy a ticket at www.canada300.ca. All performances are limited to 150 people.
