Jean-Pierre Blais does not appear to be a Robellus yes man based upon his resume.

Thanks goodness. He should start by asking for a new RC Act.

Me too. The man has a short memory when it comes to implementing consumer friendly mandates. I have no doubt he will do well personally after the favours he granted the broadcasting industry.

Lets see:
  • Life long bureaucrat at CRTC and Heritage Canada.
  • Lawyer by training who has zero track record of supporting pro-consumer initiatives.
  • Gone on record as supporting big media mergers such as Bell taking over CTV.

So a Gatineau lawyer who has been a bureaucrat all his working life who supports further consolidation of the Canadian media marketplace.

What's not to love?
