EX-CRTC Vice Chair: New Commission Boss Has Her Work Cut Out For Her

Peter Menzies spent many years as a Vice Chair of the CRTC, so I presume he knows what's in store for the new boss, Vicky Eatrides. Thursday marks the chair's first day on the job and his advice as someone who's been-there-done-that is to enjoy the early good wishes. Because he expects they won't last long as she faces huge challenges ahead, including having to:

"...make sense of Bill C-11 and attempt to prevent the many catastrophes it makes possible.

Those include the risks to the incomes of tens of thousands of Canadian digital creators, the future of an open internet and the freedom of citizens to express themselves through it. YouTube and TikTok creators see themselves as lambs being led to the slaughter, while smaller streaming companies may, depending on Ms. Eatrides’s decisions, decide that Canada just isn’t worth the trouble and leave."

Enjoy your first day, new CRTC chair Vicky Eatrides – it’s all downhill from here
