Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) chairperson Ian Scott recently defended his Commission’s stance on net neutrality.
In a January 16th, 2019 interview with the Globe and Mail, Scott said he was “really surprised” to hear that some of his previous comments on net neutrality had sparked concern among some of the country’s consumer advocacy groups, including OpenMedia.
“Let’s be really, really clear: the CRTC is the one that has created the current net neutrality regulatory framework in Canada and I would submit that it is one of the best in the world,” said Scott, according to the Globe.
Scott also said that the Commission has been “dogged” in its protection for net neutrality.
“We have not backed off and we are not walking away,” Scott told the Globe.
