When this issue was first brought to this community two or three weeks ago there was quite a bit of explanation and discussion as this community tried to bore down to the issues and possible solutions.  There might be some tweaking to the technical portion of this proposal that would improve it and if so I would definitely support that.  BUT, competitors will always be competitors and it isn't this communities business to take one side or the other.  This community should facilitate BOTH sides and make sure BOTH sides can adequately conduct their business as this is the only course that "facilitates the advancement of the Internet", which after all is the prime directive.  This community certainly should not want to get in the middle of any competitive squabble.

Still governmental requirements have to be met whether we like them or not.  Refusing to change the policy to allow Canadian cable providers to serve their customers is opposite of ARIN's mission to facilitate the advancement of the Internet.  

Some say it's government some say it's the cable companies; can anyone clearly cite the relevant regulation? If not, this doesn't need to be policy.

I would oppose the proposal if it's just the cable company trying to be difficult when competitors want to use their infrastructure.
