The opinions expressed in this editorial are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Decima Reports. The results of an informal Decima Publishing poll about the CRTC produced some interesting results. To project wildly, most of those who responded want to see a smaller commission run by someone from Atlantic Canada.  Our online survey ran from Feb. 12-27, with readers of all four Decima newsletters eligible to respond to the pop-up poll.More than a third, 38 per cent, felt the CRTC should resemble the FCC and have five commissioners. Almost as many, 36 per cent, opted for eight members. (Such an arrangement could lead to many deadlocked votes, as one bemused CRTC commissioner pointed out.) The people who voted for keeping the commission at 13 were offset by a similar number who want to reduce it to three. The libertarian faction was represented by the seven per cent who want to abolish the CRTC altogether. Interim chair David Colville was the overwhelming choice to continue in the top job. He was selected by nearly half the respondents while second place went to comedian Mary Walsh of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, who drew the support of 16 per cent. Trailing the pack were former commissioner Charles Dalfen, Bell’s Sheridan Scott, Richard Stursberg, the former CEO of Cancom, and Telefilm head François Macerola. Five and a half per cent chose the "Other" option. We have to agree with our readers. Colville is the best choice to run the commission, particularly at this time in its evolution. Industry Canada and Canadian Heritage are expected soon to launch a review of the CRTC’s mandate, including its effectiveness and efficiency in dealing with competition, mergers and the promotion of Canadian content. Presumably, this review will result in changes that will best be implemented by someone who has a firm grasp of the inner workings of the commission. Colville is a logical – and safe – choice. Then again, if you’re in the mood for something a little more risqué, there’s always Mary Wash, not to mention Deaky Dunn, Connie Bloor, and of course, Marg Princess Warrior. It would certainly boost ratings of CRTC hearings on CPAC.
