Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast: Michael Geist on the CRTC telco report

It was quite a week at the CRTC. The commission released its report on misleading and aggressive sales practices in the telecom industry which drew heavy criticism for its lack of clear, actionable timelines. One of those critics is Michael Geist, University of Ottawa Law Professor & the Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law.

On this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast, Geist talks about why the telco misleading sales practices issue is a “Penske file” for the regulator, and the commission re-opening the ISP code of conduct proceedings, among other issues.
