Industry Minister Tony Clement has confirmed that the government intends to overturn the CRTC’s usage based billing decision. In a twitter exchange
with CBC reporter Rosemary Barton, Clement was asked “is it true you will overturn internet decision if CRTC does not back down?”. Clement responded “True. CRTC must go back to drawing board.” Given that there is no reason or obvious legal mechanism for the CRTC to withdraw its UBB opinions, this appears to confirm that the government will order the CRTC to start over on the issue.
