CBC’s Search Engine on Canada’s Digital Isolation

CBC's Search Engine laments the current state of digital Canada.


  1. Dwight Williams says:

    A fair concern.
    And that’s putting it mildly. Anything more detailed will turn into a rant within 50 words. That will not serve anyone here, I think.

  2. It’s sad but, it’s true. A major generation gap, and ignorance has caused a lot of bad policy decisions. Decisions which will put Canada further behind other countries as the US now will take the lead in 2009 in the digital world.

    We’ll remain a ghetto, until the Canadian public and industries demand that digital issues be treated as a priority, and are prepared to act on it decisively and politically. The public doesn’t act until they are hit directly in the face and it directly affects them, because of this it may take years before we have our digital industry and world competitive because of the ignorance of legislators who only know what a blackberry is.
