Canadian Satellite Radio delayed?

The CRTC approved 2 satellite radio providers last June. This service has been available in the US for some time. Reports on the weekend say the government may overturn the decision and start the process all over again.

As Michael Geist puts it: The entire satellite radio process has become an embarrassment. Like it or not, the CRTC held lengthy hearings on the matter and sought to develop a solution that added significant Canadian content to satellite radio offerings...

Once again, government bends to lobbying without considering the public interest. Delaying this further is in no ones interest. Whatever happened to trying to keep Canada at the technological forefront?
