The abbolishment of the CRTC, or at least the realization that it is controlled by Rogers and Bell and is fixed, is the only thing that will make a difference. 

Failing that, someone with enough money to build a service that can actually compete, with enough backing to stand up against Bel-gers.  Because it currently stands at multiple millions of dollars to delclare your intention to offer a competing service.

So how do we stop this?  Really stop it, not just write stuff on mailing 
lists?

Does this mean calls to our federal politicians?  A letter on behalf of 
the LUG to someone (i.e. maybe a letter of recommendation/concern from 
the lug, without getting political)?  I have no problem picking up the 
phone and ringing my local policitian even if I'm likely to get ignored.

This measure just raised my bill by $15 per month - so someone's getting 
another $200 a year out of my pocket for no change in service or 
product.  One one hand I have the luxury of working from home and a 
great lifestyle so I don't give too toots about $15.  However this long 
term has the effect of stifling the internet and that's something I'm 
very concerned about at a fundamental level.

And that will have a tremendous impact on our society and the ability for the less affluent to access the wealth of knowledge that the internet is full of.  It is an attack on our culture and our educational development in the name of, not increasing--but maintaining, corporate profits.
