TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2015 /CNW/ – The United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW Canada) welcomes today’s historic ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada declaring that Canadian workers have a constitutional right to strike.

In a 5-2 majority ruling, the Court said that the right to strike is an essential part of the collective bargaining process in Canada’s system of labour relations. It further ruled that while governments have the authority to limit the right to strike for workers who perform essential services, they should not limit this right more than necessary. And the Court said that not all public sector workers should be deemed to be performing essential services. Read the rest of this entry »

Nurses back bill to reinstate the long-form census

TORONTO, Jan. 31, 2015 /CNW/ – Ottawa must bring back the long-form census to ensure that healthy public policy can be created that addresses the needs of all Canadians, says the organization representing Ontario’s registered nurses, nurse practitioners and nursing students.

As legislators prepare for next Wednesday’s vote on Bill-C626, the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is throwing its support behind MP Ted Hsu’s private member’s bill, which would reinstate the long-form census. Read the rest of this entry »

Bill C-43, the Economic Action Plan Act, No. 2, recently received Royal Assent. Some of the amendments adopted by Parliament grant new tools and responsibilities to the CRTC.

In particular, the CRTC can now issue monetary penalties to any company or person that violates the Telecommunications Act as well as related CRTC decisions or regulations. Monetary penalties are an addition to our toolkit. They will promote compliance with telecommunications laws and regulations. This will ensure Canadians have access to a world-class communication system—one in which there is sustainable competition and a choice of innovative content and services.

Monetary penalties also give the CRTC greater flexibility to tailor its enforcement approach to each situation and to the facts before it. In some cases, a monetary penalty might be the right approach. We will be providing further guidance in the coming weeks on how and when the CRTC intends to use this new power.

Changes to the Telecommunications Act and Broadcasting Act, under Bill C-43, have also prohibited providers from charging customers a fee to receive paper bills for wireless, Internet, telephone and television services. This includes undertakings that the CRTC has exempted from holding a broadcasting licence.

We are, however, conscious that some service providers may need to update their billing systems to automatically remove these charges. In the meantime, the Commission will consider operators to be in compliance if they manually make adjustments to customer bills in the earliest available billing cycle, through rebates or otherwise, thus reversing charges for paper bills. We encourage providers to work proactively with their customers to ensure the most efficient transition to implement this new legislative requirement.

December 5, 2014 – Ottawa-Gatineau – Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

In Beauty, book reviews, Business, cars, Contact Information, Creative Writing, Culture, Disability, Education, Entertainment, Environment, Events, Health, Home Decor, Living, Media Writing, Movie Reviews, Music, Opinion, Radio Podcasts, Religion, Restaurant Reviews, Sports, Technology, travel, Uncategorized, Video Work, Writing (all kinds) on May 2, 2015 at 3:00 AM
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today approved, with conditions, an interim service that will make it easier to access emergency responders in the Yukon. This service was proposed by the Yukon Government as a temporary solution while it works to implement 9-1-1 service throughout the territory.

Citizens and visitors will be able to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency situation anywhere in the territory without having to remember the seven-digit telephone numbers that some emergency responders currently use. By dialing 9-1-1, callers will be directed by an automated service to select either police, fire or emergency medical services from an interactive menu.

The CRTC has approved this proposal on the condition that all calls using the service are ultimately answered, i.e. calls to local police, fire and emergency medical services that are not answered must be automatically transferred to the local RCMP detachment or the 9-1-1 call centre in Whitehorse.

The Yukon Government has committed to implement Basic 9-1-1 service throughout the territory within the next 12 to 20 months. Basic 9-1-1 service will ensure that all 9-1-1 calls are answered by a trained live 9-1-1 operator who can dispatch the appropriate emergency responders.

In addition, the Yukon Government must conduct a comprehensive public awareness campaign to explain how the service functions, as well as its availability, characteristics and limitations.


Quick Facts

- CRTC has approved, with conditions, an interim service that will make it easier to access emergency responders in the Yukon.
- Callers within all communities of the Yukon will be able to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency situation rather than one of the seven-digit number currently used by some emergency response agencies in communities without 9-1-1.
- The Yukon Government has committed to providing Basic 9-1-1 service throughout the territory within the next 12 to 20 months. Basic 9-1-1 service is currently available only in the Whitehorse area.


Quote

“This interim solution is a step towards keeping citizens and visitors safer in the Yukon, as it will make it possible for them to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency situation. However, it is now up to the Yukon Government to fulfill its commitment and implement Basic 9-1-1 service throughout the territory as soon as possible.”

Peter Menzies, Vice-Chairman of Telecommunications

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.

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 »
