VERY happy to hear this. I think if you regularly visit or post comments on this forum I think you would agree. Good news for O.T.A. In Canada!

"...the CRTC does not expect over-the-air television and simultaneous substitution to be around indefinitely." 

Allowing local stations (CTV) to continue simsub is a way to cover the cost of local programming. If this isn't enough, don't be surprised if the big 4 (CTV, CBC, Global, CITY/OMNI) cut jobs and reduce the number of local stations.  The change to the simsub rules only applies to the SuperBowl and speciality channels like TSN.  If CTV/TSN can't sub commercials after 2016, what Canadian broadcaster would pay $15 million U.S. per year for the rights.  BECAREFUL OF WHAT YOU WISH FOR.  Next year an additional NFL playoff game moves to ESPN stateside; eventually up here 'NFL ON CTV' will become 'NFL ON PPV' (pay-per-view).
