The federal government Tuesday announced $675,000 in funding for a University of Waterloo-based project aimed at shoring up cybersecurity in quantum computing.
The Commission for Complaints for Telecom-television Services (CCTS) issued its 2021 compliance monitoring report on Monday. It found 2,400 alleged violations arising from 15,000 complaints against participating service providers (PSPs). The three most common breaches were PSPs incorrectly informing the agency the complaint had been resolved; incomplete information from the PSPs; and objections on merit, which is not permitted under CCTS rules.
Several broadcast industry stakeholders are arguing to the Governor-in-Council (GIC) that the CRTC’s treatment of local news in the CBC/Radio-Canada’s licence renewal derogates the objectives of the Broadcasting Act and should be overturned.
The CRTC is asking Rogers Communications Inc. and Shaw Communications Inc. to confirm that they have reached an agreement over burying cable lines in British Columbia. The pact would cover transmission costs for cable lines on, over, under or along BC highways.
Submissions to the Department of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development’s (ISED) consultation on a new draft policy direction for the CRTC reveal some of the legal arguments that could be used to fight the direction should the government give it the force of law.
The department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) is auctioning off 42 spectrum licences that either remain unallocated since its respective auctions, not been renewed, have been canceled by ISED, or that have been returned by a licensee prior to the end of its term.
