After you are done watching this short video by Steve Cutts, you can read about net neutrality and how that will impact Canadians.

Because Net Neutrality is part of a much larger structural problem that we have to deal with in Canada and around the world.

Like their American counterparts, Canada’s telecom giants have so much control over the market they can embrace what I call the Big Telecom price-gouging cycle [...]. Basically, Telecoms use their fists full of cash and their army of lobbyists to shape laws that enable them to price-gouge people across Canada, then they reinvest a portion of that parasitic revenue into more lobbying and control.

In addition to being massively inefficient, this broken telecom market has enabled telecom giants to extract money from Canadian families, community groups and small businesses to the benefit of a narrow group of telecom execs and other benefactors.
