Rick Mercer Rants on Canada's Telecommunications Costs

The User Based Billing bunk and the enormously uncompetitive telecommunications business in Canada is going to ensure we are marginalized and continue to be penalized in the new economy.

Rick Mercer captures the essence of this angst and should spark the anger of Canadians on the gouging that is going on.  The CRTC seems to be the epitome of the Stockholm Syndrome held captive by cable operators and telcos who control most of the excessively expensive access to the Internet while not even feigning to be interested in being the regulator and protector of the public interest on this issue.
