. Bell Canada v. British Columbia Broadband Association

In Bell Canada v. British Columbia Broadband Association (Fed CA, 2020) the Federal Court of Appeal considers the breadth of the CRTC's methodological choice when setting telecommunications rates:
[184] The appellants have not demonstrated any error of law or jurisdiction arising out of any breach of procedural fairness or arbitrary decision-making. Their concerns center in largest part on the methods chosen by the Commission and the Commission’s conclusions when it applied those methods to the evidence before it. The Commission may adopt and apply any method it considers appropriate for determining rates (Act, subsection 27(5); Bell Canada v. Canadian Radio-Television & Telecommunications Commission, 2009 SCC 40, [2009] 2 S.C.R. 764, at paragraph 40; Ontario (Energy Board) v. Ontario Power Generation Inc., 2015 SCC 44, [2015] 3 S.C.R. 147, at paragraph 81). The proper avenue of recourse lies with the Commission itself by way of a request for reconsideration or by way of an appeal to the Governor in Council.
