Blocking would also be a form of control.  Because Section 36 has a
"unless authorized by CRTC" escape clause, one has to show to the CRTC
that granting permission would be bad.

Since court proceedings have already begun, it is likely the CRTC will
be involved in court, at which point, the more evidence they have, the
more chances they have of arguing against the QC loterry censorship.
