This is a problem where incumbent Canadian cable providers demand that
subordinate ISPs assign IP addresses in a manner wholly inconsistent
with ARIN policy and indeed incompatible with good stewardship of the
dwindling supply of IPv4 addresses.

1. This is for the CRTC to solve, not ARIN.

2. If ARIN acts at all, it should punitively restrict or rescind IPv4
addresses available to the incumbent cable providers acting in such a
repugnant manner.

I OPPOSE the proposal as written.
