The acting president of the Canadian Cable Television Association (CCTA) has attacked comments made this week by BCE Inc. president and CEO Michael Sabia, saying what Bell wants on the telephony side isn’t what cable gets in broadcasting. Speaking February 25 in Ottawa, Sabia called for a new regulatory framework for the telephone business. The revised policy framework, argued Sabia, must reflect how customers view the industry and meet their needs, must provide the same rules for all service providers, and must focus on investment and innovation to drive continued Canadian leadership in the communications sector.
