Canadian broadcast industry clashes over regulations in Netflix era
http://www.nationalpost.com/genie+bottle+canadian+broadcast+industry+clashes+over+regulations+netflix/17146663/story.html

One camp wants the government to enforce broadcast regulations for streaming services such as Netflix; another wants it to deregulate broadcasting. Some outright ignore the Liberals’ vow not to tax Netflix or the internet, asking Ottawa to implement such taxes and spend the money on Canadian content. Many called on the government to at least require Netflix to collect and remit sales taxes.

Rogers and BCE Inc. both proposed regulations to force streaming services to fund Canadian content as traditional broadcasters are required to do.
