By allowing to provide one ownership group, Bell Media in this case, the right to manipulate and control the majority of the material dispersed on the airways, the CRTC appears to be contributing to the systematic problem of lack of transperancy. If we are in a free democratic market system, the CRTC should be assisting and allowing other companies who want to enter into the market place at this time or at a later stage, special privilidges to enter the market and not allow those omni-present large institutions, such as Bell Media, a free pass to control the airways.
Take a moment and look at the countries we compete with and you will soon realize that we are paying more than twice what other private citizens of the G7 or G20 are paying for communication services and the end user is getting less than half as much as the benefits available to other end users in other countries.
Again, teh CRTC, a Government institution appears to be bending the rules for those who yield a large stick, or wad of money, or influence, such as the MEDIA Giants in Canada which by the way is irresponsible, unethical and should immediately stop.
DO NOT ALLOW THE MARKETPLACE TO BE RUN AS A MONOPOLY. You may recall Bell had a Monopoly at one time and you are now allowing them another free pass to take full control to monopolize and control a democratic system. By the way, your interventions don't work. What happen to the English version 24 hour TRAFFIC Radio station promised on the 940 AM, similar to 730 AM? It never happened, why? Is it because the CRTC was pursuaded not to provide the same level of security measures (a safe driving environment) for the english speaking resident and to the business community wishing to visit and perhaps set up shop to compete in the Montreal marketplace.

Don't allow Bell Media, or any other owner any special favors. The LAW / GROUND RULES should not be changed for anyone, regardless of their short term or long term implications. PLEASE STOP MEDDLING with the Ground Rules. No to BELL Media taking control of another frequency on the airways. The frequency 990 AM has always been reserved as an English Language frequency, let it remain ENGLISH. THe owner has the right to cease operations, which will allow a potential owner to exploit the frequency at a later time. DOn't Allow the Astral sale to Bell to use a back door tactic to meddle with the decision making process. The CRTC sould have as its primary objective to protect the rights of every individual and not provide special exemptions, especially to those who already have too much control of too many frequencies on the airways.
