Changing the Channel on Canadian Communications Regulation

Canada’s communications and broadcasting world has changed dramatically in recent decades, but its communications and broadcasting statutes and regulations have not kept pace, states a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Changing the Channel on Canadian Communications Regulation,” authors Benjamin Dachis and Daniel Schwanen say the federal government should replace ineffective Canadian content regulations with direct subsidies, introduce more legal and economic rigour in regulatory hearings, and eliminate ownership restrictions on communications companies and wireless spectrum.
