Policy and participation on the Canadian information highway
AbstractThe debate over universal access is focused on too narrow a concept by all sides of the argument. Furthermore, this debate continues to be an exclusive one dominated by special interest groups operating in a legalistic regulatory process. As an alternative, this paper proposes that the issue of universal access be addressed in the broader conceptual framework of the right to communicate. As well, the policy debate should be moved to the political arena through an initiative to incorporate the right to communicate in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
