FRPC opposes CRTC proposal to raise price of cable/satellite TV service

On 28 November 2022 FRPC intervened in BNoC 2022-267, to oppose

a) an application filed in January 2022 by four of Canada’s major distributors, to raise their rates by $3/month and by inflation each year afterwards

b) the proposals in BNoC 2022-267 about the ways in which the CRTC ought to grant the application for the four applicants and all other BDUs, if it decided to grant the application

Briefly, FRPC opposed the intervention because – although broadcast applicants to the CRTC are required by its Rules of Practice and Procedure to submit arguments and evidence, the applicants in this proceeding offered no evidence and based much of their argumentation on the Telecommunications Act rather than the Broadcasting Act
