CTV takes dead aim at CRTC

I’m not sure if it’s the best thing to do, to rip your regulator when you’re trying to get them to make a change in your favor, but CTV’s Ivan Fecan did just that yesterday, expressing five years of frustration at the specialty channels making great profits because of carriage fees, while the over the air nets struggle with an ever splintering market, resulting in layoffs and closures at all three English language nets.

“What are you trying to achieve? I’m at a loss to consider why you, Mr. Chairman, who have no skin in this game, why you would play this kind of risk with our business.”
