UPDATE!!! CRTC Still Delaying VRS!
May 25, 2012
Today, CRTC posted an announcement about Video Relay Service:
You will remember that Bell Canada finished researching VRS feasibility, how to set it up in Canada, how to pay for it…
Also Telus finished a test VRS, gathered in-depth information, and so on…
CRTC reviewed these reports and decided they are not enough! CRTC wants *more* research!
CRTC is just wasting time and money with all of these delays!
Also, CRTC says, “Text relay satisfies the vast majority of deaf/hard of hearing.” Really?! This is why CRTC thinks there is no need to rush and set up VRS — they think we are all happy with text relay!
This weekend, the CAD-ASC will write a letter and media release to oppose CRTC’s delays. Enough! Get on with it and set up VRS in Canada!
