Canadians: Tell the CRTC to regulate traffic shaping

Many Canadian Internet Service Providers practice traffic shaping during high-usage periods, which means that while they may sell you a connection at a particular speed (e.g., 10mbps), they may actively slow down your connection if you are using peer to peer software or doing something else they don’t like. To be clear: the regulation issue here is not about what you think of file sharing practices online, but whether ISPs should be able to tell you what kinds of activities you can and can’t do online when the activities themselves are not illegal (to be clear: there is nothing illegal about using torrent software to move files).
