Their protecting Canadian television content all of these years, to me, has always been a joke and nothing more than a way of ensuring that a small group of Toronto based entertaiment (entertaining rarely at best) companies have employment. It is protectionism, prejudism and yet another way for the easten politiions to suck money out of the rest of Canada. And how thick are their packets getting as a benifit.
Now that we are living in the age of information I would hope that censorship groups such as CRTC may be tossed in the "what were we thinking" refuse pile of outdated ideas.
For those that feel hat we as Canadians need to be protected from becoming "Americanised" ... it is a prejudised idea and I think Canadian people are defined by their gracious and humble willingness to embrace humanity and our undying willingness to fight for any and everyones freedom. We only need to be protected from those that would take away freedom be they from abroud or within our own borders.
O O no spell check, forgive me Im a carpenter ( insert sheepish smile here)
Here is the letter they may or may not have discarded on me.
Once again this evening I find that I am unable to watch shows on the internet because of your sensorship. This happens infrequently and what it adds up to is that you are dictating my freedom. You at the CRTC have taken it upon youselves to decide what us free canadians can and cannot have access too on the world wide web. Whatever excuse you use or justification you can come up with does not chenge the fact that you have impeded on my personal freedom, not as an elected representative of the canadian people but as some appointed group of individuals.
Your usefullness has been passed by and I hope to plant a seed that will help to have you all abolished so that the canadian public will be free to have access whatever they choose and not what you have mandated.
I think a letter writing campain to news agancies will be a good place to start along with a demand that this trajic waste of tax dollars become a campain issue and that this farce finally come to an end in the next federal election.
Don't speak of protecting Canadian content because if the content is not good enough to stand on it's own than it is just another horrible waste of money.
It is hard to believe in this day and age that anyone would be so self centered and self serving as to impose their own will on free people.
I will tell you this; if you are profitting as a result of the regulations that you have imposed then I hope karma is ruthless and thorough when serving up your punishment.
