Canada’s incumbent telecoms are asking the CRTC to delay the start date of an anti-call spoofing technology. In an Oct. 28 filing to the commission, BCE Inc., Telus Corp. and Saskatchewan Telecommunications Holding Corp. say that the STIR/SHAKEN Condition does not have an exemption for 9-1-1 calls and emergency callbacks. The system is scheduled to roll out Nov. 30.
