Government Provides Details on Do-Not-Call Enforcement

The government has provided new insights into enforcement of the do-not-call list. In response to questions on the order paper from Liberal MP Rodger Cuzner, Industry Minister Christian Paradis provides the background information on the Telus settlement with the CRTC over automated calling as well as specific numbers (as of May 31, 2011) on DNCL enforcement that led to penalties. As of that date, the CRTC had issued penalties of just over $2 million ($1.8 million recieved) and negotiated four additional settlements for a total value of $2.5 million.
