Materials submitted to the CRTC during its regulatory proceedings provide a wealth of information on how Canadians access the internet, but their varying formats — and the sheer number of them — make it difficult to find, aggregate, and analyze the data they contain. This project will extract and analyze the publicly available data submitted to the 2016 CRTC Basic Service Objective consultation. It will focus on the positions of respondents and the evidence they provided, and how these views were referenced in the final decision. This information will then be made publicly available through reports, as well as open-sourced scripts and methodologies. This will enable others — including researchers, policy makers and journalists — to apply the same techniques to other consultation datasets.
