The policies established by Parliament are carried out by the CRTC. In the Broadcasting Act, and Telecommunications Act respectively, the main elements of these policies can be found in the objectives. This review is an opportunity to examine and revise these objectives, in order to clarify the desired outcomes for legislation given the constantly changing communications environment. The CRTC does not take a position on whether separate legislation should exist for radiocommunications, broadcasting and telecommunications. No matter how new legislation is drafted, some principles must be used to guide the way.
The objectives of any new legislation should be clear and specific. They should also not overlap or become prescriptive. For example, it should not specify or make assumptions with regard to the type of service or technology by which outcomes should be achieved. An effective approach is to introduce a straightforward purpose clause. This will frame the context for any communication legislation. The clause could be used to interpret any set of goals or outcomes, and not place restrictions on the implementation of those outcomes.
In relation to telecommunications, much of the current legislative framework continues to demonstrate its effectiveness in the new communications environment; however, certain adjustments would be valuable to enhance that effectiveness for the future. As an example, existing legislation is concerned with the introduction competition to an environment which was previously dominated largely by regulatory regional monopolies. Given the fact that competition has been introduced to most telecoms markets in a variety of degrees, the new legislation should be focused instead on outcomes that benefit Canadians during an age of hyperconnectivity. This includes optimizing competition, making it affordable and innovative, and expanding these services throughout the country.
Broadcasting is facing fundamental changes. The CRTC already specified in its report the three principles that may be incorporated within new legislation, either as specific outcomes or purpose clauses. According to the report, a new legislative and regulatory approach should be taken with content distribution.
focus on the production and promotion of reflective, informative and/or entertaining high-quality content by Canadians that is discoverable by Canadians and the rest of the world;
Recognize that Canada has its social and cultural responsibilities and make sure that Canadians are benefited in the most appropriate, equitable and fair manner.
To be flexible, creative and adaptive to new situations.
Finally, regulators need to adapt their approach to the ever-changing communications environment. Current legislation has retained some relevance because it was drafted in a manner that is largely "technologically neutral." However, its drafters could not have foreseen the manner in which the technologies employed would change or how Internet-based services would blur the lines between, for example, what is a telecommunications service, a programming service or a distribution service.
Future legislation should be not only technologically neutral but must also refrain from making any assumptions about the communications environment in the future. You should not draw any bright lines. This means that it must only make precise distinctions and references between technologies, platforms, and other types of services where they are critical. It must distinguish the services, platforms and technologies it is to capture from those not. Future issues will result if legislation restricts or limits the power of regulatory approaches or prescribes limitations on certain services. Instead, regulators require a wide range of flexible tools that can be adapted to fit the environment as it changes. It would not be a good idea to have a rigid structure that is difficult to adjust to changing conditions.
With the right flexibility in legislation, regulators can adapt their regulatory approach to keep up with these changes and still implement those outcomes. Ideally, new legislation should establish those outcomes and allow regulators the discretion to determine how to best make use of the tools provided by legislation to pursue those outcomes. Unless market failure is proven or a regulatory goal cannot be met, the CRTC will continue to allow markets and services without any direct intervention.
The following sections set out more detailed comments on each of the themes identified in the Call for Comments. Not every question raised in that document has been addressed. These comments instead focus on those areas that the CRTC feels it can be most helpful at this point in the review process.
