From the Hollywood Reporter: Head of Canadian regulatory agency CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commissions) Jean-Pierre Blais says he and his fellow commissioners are re-thinking the regulatory regime, particularly with regard to Netflix Canada. Canadian content on television, radio, and in other media has been a priority, but, says Mr. Blais, regulation for regulation's sake is not the goal. "[W]hat matters is having the audacity to do the right thing, the right way, for the right reasons in the right circumstances. Sometimes that means we, at the CRTC, have to step back. Boldly dare to let creative or market forces take over."
