Panel recommends new powers, roles for CRTC

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission would get sweeping new powers and responsibilities if the federal government adopts recommendations in an expert panel's review of key laws. The panel's 235-page report makes 97 recommendations, including that the CRTC get explicit jurisdiction over all entities offering electronic communications services in Canada, even if they don't have a place of business in Canada. It also recommends that the federal government immediately require foreign media content suppliers to collect the goods and services tax on subscriptions in order to eliminate a disadvantage faced by their Canadian competitors.
