From the Canadian Press, via Huffington Post Canada:
GATINEAU, Que. – The federal broadcast regulator has named Leonard Katz as its acting chairman.
Katz steps in for Konrad von Finckenstein, who has retired from the CRTC.
Katz has been vice-chairman of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission since 2007.
Before joining the regulator, he spent 30 years in the private sector including stints as president and chief operating officer of Digimerge Technologies and president of Rogers Business Solutions.
And from Wikipedia:
In economics, regulatory capture occurs when a state regulatory agency created to act in the public interest instead advances the commercial or special interests that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating.
Bell and Rogers control the media (print & broadcast), delivery mechanisms (satellite & cable), and communication networks (phone & internet) in this country. The CRTC is in their pocket, and it exists to maintain the status quo. Competition be damned.
