In the US there are thousands of independent ISPs. I assume Canada at least has hundreds of them. There are plenty of ways of utilize independents to improve access versus throwing cash into a fan. 

Not to mention the ridiculousness of a 50/10 requirement.

I agree. To hell with 'government'. What has it done for you lately, anyway? 

Canada should just have Comcast (or is it "Xfinity"?) provided 
nation-wide Internet service as a for-profit monopoly. 

Problem solved!
