From today's Financial Post, the following:

"Blais, who is known for an authoritative leadership style, steered the CRTC on a consumer-friendly agenda that often rankled big businesses. Some believe he has a shot at an extended term even though he was appointed by the Conservatives, given his positive relationship with the heritage department."
