Not Neutral: Why the Broadcast Panel Report Weakens Net Neutrality in Canada - Michael Geist
Net neutrality featured prominently in the launch of the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Legislative Review Panel in 2018 with the government release stating "the review will be guided by the principle of net neutrality and will explore opportunities to further enshrine in legislation the principles of net neutrality in the provision and carriage of all telecommunications services." The panel report includes a section on net neutrality which affirms support for the principle and which features two recommendations - one calls for a policy objective in the Telecommunications Act "to reflect the duty to safeguard open Internet access in Canada" and a second that calls on the CRTC to increase data gathering and reporting on open Internet access policies.
