CRTC claims transparency sufficient in an anti-competative marketplace

A CRTC press release from the CRTC seems to indicate that they didn't understand the traffic management issue before them. While they separate retail and wholesale in name, they don't in policy. They did not separate the phone and cable companies which see the Internet as a competative threat to their legacy services from the ISPs who seek to offer Internet services.

The government has granted an effective duopoly to phone and cable companies on the last mile to customers, and it is this last mile (or more precisely, the connections between the last mile and the phone switches where ISP's are able to connect) that the phone companies were throttling. This is also the least expensive part of the infrastructure for the phone companies, and thus the part where shaping is the least legitimate.
