Telecom giants challenge CRTC code of conduct

Canada’s major wireless carriers want to overturn what they call retroactive provisions in the federal telecom regulators’ new wireless code of conduct, a move critics say could push back implementation of long-awaited consumer safeguards.
In a notice of motion this week, cell phone service providers including Rogers Communications, Bell Mobility, Telus Communications and Saskatchewan Telecommunications asked the Federal Court of Appeal to allow their appeal of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission’s code as it relates to wireless contracts.
They say the CRTC “exceeded its jurisdiction and erred in law” in applying terms of the code to contracts signed before the rules start coming into force on Dec 2.
