Default For those in need of a good laugh

This is an email that happened last month regarding the CRTC hearings in Canada regarding DARS service. I had submitted a support for SIRIUS based on signal reach, and an intervention on the other two - XM and CHUM - because they lack signal reach in all of Canada. I was glad to hear from someone else who suggested that I ask to attend to submit my support/interventions in person. My response is in italics below, with his reponse at the bottom. For those of you who know anything about SIRIUS and XM's signal reach, try not to laugh too hard.

While I would love to appear before the CRTC, I don't believe my time allows
for it. I'm glad I did submit my intervention, as it was probably the only
one. All of the others, unfortunately, were just people who had something
to gain, which doesn't say much about them. My outlook is potential reach.
While XM does run a competitive service, and CHUM might reach a certain
percentage, it's overall reach doesn't begin to compare to SIRIUS. It
would've been more appropriate for the people who supported CHUM to step
back and take an objective look at the bigger picture; satellite radio's
potential reach will far exceed everyones expectations - something CHUM may
never be able to do. If those who support CHUM are successful in getting
such a service licenced, so be it. In the unlikely event that SIRIUS is
denied, I'm more than prepared to continue paying a premium fee for my
satellite radio service.

thanks for the response
just so you know XM's signal is superior to Sirius' in Canada, but I know that is not the point of your intervention
Let's see what happens

This guy is either biased, or uninformed.
