#CTS19: The regulatory blockbuster

For many delegates, The Regulatory Blockbuster continues to be an annual highlight of The Canadian Telecom Summit and the 2019 edition lived up to their expectations.

Once again, the session was moderated by Greg O’Brien, editor and publisher of, Canada’s news leader covering the Canadian cable, radio, television and telecom sectors.

The panel consisted of:
•  Samer Bishay, President & CEO, Iristel & Ice Wireless;
•  Andy Kaplan-Myrth, VP, Regulatory & Carrier Affairs, TekSavvy Solutions;
•  Robert Malcolmson, SVP, Regulatory Affairs, Bell Canada;
•  CJ Prudham, Chief Legal Officer, Xplornet Communications;
•  David Watt, SVP, Regulatory, Rogers; and,
•  Ted Woodhead, SVP, Strategic Policy Advisor, TELUS.

Each year, this session gives an opportunity to explore the most pressing regulatory and policy issues being reviewed in the Nation’s Capital. This year, the panel had identified more than a dozen potential topics, but never got past the first.

It was a lively discussion that brought in views from the audience as well.
