CRTC Determines Internet Too Much Fun, Must Be Regulated

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has announced this week that they are furious with Canadians who, reports show, are having a great deal of fun on the internet. In accordance with their strict no-fun policy, the CRTC has responded by sending Canadians to their room to think about what they've done. They're also threatened to reconsider their too-lenient hands-off policy.


Canadians are watching more and more videos and TV shows that aren't required to have home-grown content via their computers and cellphones, but after a decade of explosive Internet growth the CRTC will review its hands-off approach to the medium.

The federal broadcast regulator will begin hearings on Tuesday in Gatineau, Que., to review its policy of allowing broadcasting content to be unregulated on the Internet and cellphones.

This is actually a real coincidence. You see, I was just thinking that we didn't have enough stupid and illiberal government regulation in Canada and that this would be a perfect way to set things straight against.

Thanks CRTC!
