Bill to reform CRTC rules imminent: minister

Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault is promising to table legislation to reform Canada’s broadcasting and telecom rules within a matter of months, but is offering few details on what the proposed changes will be. On Wednesday, an expert panel delivered a report recommending sweeping new powers be given to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, including oversight of foreign streaming services like Netlifx, Amazon and Apple. The panel also recommended Ottawa immediately require these streaming companies to start collecting GST/HST. Guilbeault says he agrees that companies operating in Canada should pay taxes.
