Industry Minister Tony Clement reiterated on Wednesday that Ottawa will compel the CRTC to overturn any decision that imposes usage-based billing on small Internet service providers. “You can’t have competition and choice if you allow a major carrier to force its business model onto an independent service provider,” Clement said at a student forum at the University of Alberta. Clement also spoke about the cellphone market, expressing confidence that the government will win its appeal of a court decision that will lock Wind Mobile out of the Canadian mobile market because of foreign ownership laws.
