CRTC Hearings on National Do Not Call List

Canada's communications regulator, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), announced at the beginning of the week that it will hold public hearings in May on the creation of rules for a national "do not call" list for people who do not want to be bothered by telemarketers.

According to the Library of Parliament website, the legislation creating the list was given Royal Assent in late November 2005 but has not yet been proclaimed into force. The Library of Parliament provides backgrounders and an in-depth legislative summary of the new bill. It was one of the previous Liberal government's last pieces of legislation before it lost the non-confidence vote that triggered the recent federal elections.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has also prepared some background information on the issue.
