Canada – Scott Hutton to the Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs

Speech

The Internet has exponentially increased access to all kinds of content, including sexually explicit material. We acknowledge and share the concerns about the adverse effects and negative social impacts that exposure to pornography can have on youth and adolescents. This is a global issue that, in our view, requires a comprehensive, whole-of-government approach and many different tools.

March 2, 2022

Scott Hutton, Chief of Consumer, Research and Communications

Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

Check against delivery

Thank you, Madam Chair, for inviting us to appear before your Committee. I am joined today by my colleague Peter McCallum, a consultant Legal Counsel for the CRTC.

We are aware of your study of Bill S-210, which proposes to restrict young peoples’ online access to sexually explicit material.

The Internet has exponentially increased access to all kinds of content, including sexually explicit material. We acknowledge and share the concerns about the adverse effects and negative social impacts that exposure to pornography can have on youth and adolescents. This is a global issue that, in our view, requires a comprehensive, whole-of-government approach and many different tools.

There is no simple solution to regulate harmful online content. Many jurisdictions are struggling with this issue, and I would note that the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage recently adopted a motion to conduct a study on the harms caused by online access to sexually explicit material.

Of course, there is no place on the Internet for harmful or illegal content. There are provisions in the Criminal Code to address this type of content and several organizations at the federal level are actively engaged in these files. They include Public Safety Canada, Justice Canada, the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Crime Centre and the Canadian Centre for Child Protection.

At the moment, Canadians can control their access – and their children’s access – to inappropriate content using filtering software and parental controls.

Bill S-210 would enable designated enforcement authorities to take steps to prevent sexually explicit material from being made available to youth on the Internet in Canada. While we support the aims of the proposed legislation, the CRTC does not currently have such authority.

Canada’s Telecommunications Act does not clearly provide for the regulation of content with respect to Internet service providers. Our legislation is built on the foundational principle of net neutrality. This refers to the concept that all traffic on the Internet should be given equal treatment by Internet service providers (ISPs). ISPs should not manipulate, discriminate or give preference to the content that passes through their networks.

The CRTC was one of the first regulators in the world to implement an approach to uphold net neutrality. We have issued three decisions that, combined, form the current regulatory framework for net neutrality in Canada.

Even if the CRTC were given the power to order ISPs to verify the appropriateness of the content passing through their network, it may not be technically feasible for them to implement an age verification system.

In terms of content, the CRTC’s powers were designed with the traditional broadcasting system in mind. As you are most likely aware, Bill C-11, which is currently being debated in the House, proposes to modernize the Broadcasting Act. If adopted by Parliament, Bill C-11 will empower the CRTC to ensure that online broadcasters contribute to Canadian content and achieve other important public policy objectives. The legislation would give us the three key elements that we are missing to regulate online platforms: the clarity of jurisdiction, the ability to gather data and the necessary enforcement tools.

That being said, let me repeat that harmful and illegal online content is a global problem. Various countries are looking at different strategies to prevent minors from accessing this type of content online.

For instance, Australia is working to implement a mandatory age verification system, but its approach also recognizes the need for greater education, awareness and understanding of respectful and harmful sexual behaviours among youth. The Australian eSafety Commissioner is consulting the public and stakeholders. One of the key insights from its initial consultation is that a one-size-fits-all technological approach would not be effective.

In 2021, the European Council proposed amendments to the draft Digital Services Act to improve provisions related to the use of age verification and parental control tools to mitigate the risk of exposure to harmful content. These provisions would apply to large online platforms and search engines. Debates are expected to begin soon regarding the final text of the Act.

The European Commission has also funded a project to enable service providers to verify the age of their users, which will be piloted later this year by 1,500 children, parents and adults from at least three countries in the European Union.

Finally, the United Kingdom is in the process of implementing new regulations to ensure that video-sharing platforms implement measures to protect users from harmful content. It requires the platforms to establish age verification systems, with priority for those providing access to pornography.

Clearly these international efforts are in the early stages and it remains to be seen how effective they will be at protecting children. This is certainly a challenging area, as research has found that children are increasingly adept at finding workarounds to age verification systems.

To be frank, there is no single organization or single measure that can effectively address this issue. We believe that it is important to learn from our international counterparts, take the time to evaluate the most effective means to prevent minors from being exposed to harmful online content and develop a whole-of-government approach.

We would be pleased to answer your questions to the extent that we are able.

Canada – Ian Scott to the Standing Committee on Industry and Technology

Speech

We appreciate the opportunity to provide an update about the CRTC’s ongoing work to support competition and investment in the marketplace so that Canadians have access to the broadband and wireless services they need.

February 8, 2022

Ian Scott, Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer

Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)

Check against delivery

Thank you for inviting us to appear before your Committee.

With me today are my colleagues Philippe Kent, Director of Telecommunications Services Policy, and Anthony McIntyre, General Counsel and Deputy Executive Director.

We appreciate the opportunity to provide an update about the CRTC’s ongoing work to support competition and investment in the marketplace so that Canadians have access to the broadband and wireless services they need.

We understand your concerns about the affordability of these vital services for the Canadian population, and we share those concerns. We have been working to implement a policy that is intended to foster competition among Internet service providers in the marketplace.

Much has been said about the decision we issued in May 2021, which set the final wholesale rates for aggregated high-speed broadband access services. Before I speak about the substance of this decision, I do want to make clear that this was a costing decision. It’s important that we get the rates right.

Now, why did we reverse course? To put it simply, we got the initial decision wrong. We couldn’t move ahead with rates that we knew were erroneous.

While we always strive to get things right, the CRTC is not infallible. Legislators anticipated this, and included provisions in the Telecommunications Act that enable decisions to be reviewed by the Commission, Cabinet and the courts, as a mechanism to ensure that the public interest is protected.

In accordance with these provisions, companies submitted applications asking us to review our 2019 decision, as is their right. We addressed those requests seriously, fairly and in an impartial manner—as we always do in our role as an administrative tribunal. We built a public record and gathered evidence from interested parties. When we analyzed the evidence, we found errors and could no longer justify the associated rates. Ultimately, we chose to reaffirm and make final the interim rates that we set in 2016, with some adjustments.

The Commission’s work to implement its wholesale access policy continues. There are numerous ongoing proceedings that are looking at the regime, our costing methodologies, barriers to the deployment of broadband and more.

While I fully acknowledge that the new final rates are creating challenges for some competitors, I am absolutely confident we have done the responsible thing. I would stress that the 2019 rates were never in effect in the marketplace. Some competitors lowered their retail rates on the basis of that decision, but that was a business decision and a risk that they assumed given the appeals that were being filed at the time.

While greater competition among broadband providers will benefit Canadians, there are far too many areas of the country that still do not have access to adequate or affordable broadband.

That is why the CRTC is working to close Canada’s digital divide. Through our Broadband Fund, the CRTC has committed more than $186 million to date to improve broadband services for about 29,050 households in 160 underserved and unserved communities. This includes a significant number of Indigenous communities.

We continue to evaluate proposals and we will announce new projects as they are approved.

Finally, let me conclude by giving you an update on our mobile wireless decision, which we issued last April. Among other things, our decision created a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) regime for Canada. It opens the door for service providers to access the wireless networks of the big three national carriers—Bell, Rogers and Telus—as well as SaskTel in Saskatchewan. We are currently in the process of establishing the associated terms and conditions of this access.

Doing so will enable wireless providers to expand services into new markets, challenge larger wireless providers and disrupt the status quo.

This is good news for Canadians. Consumers will benefit from a market for mobile wireless services that features more providers, more choice, more affordable options and more investment. In addition, we took action to ensure Canadians can sign up for low-cost and occasional use plans.

I hope my remarks have helped to clarify the work the CRTC is doing to support more competition and investment in the marketplace, ensure Canadians have access to high-quality broadband and wireless services, and regulate in the public interest.

We would be pleased to answer your questions. Before we do, I must qualify my remarks by saying that we are unable to delve into specifics about any files that are currently before the Commission.
