I talked to a Canadian ham a couple of weeks ago, and his opinion was that 
the Canadian gov't has all but abandoned any concern about ham radio much 
like the FCC has all but given up on CB in the US.  He told me that the ham 
licence was issued for lifetime now, with no expiration and that the annual 
renewal fee has been cancelled.

I can see how that could be a double edged sword.  There wouldn't be the 
never-ending concern about the micky mouse gov't micromanagement of ham 
radio like the bandwidth proposal and subband debate going on in the US, but 
on the other hand, we don't want ham radio to become so deregulated that it 
becomes little more than a "respectable" version of CB.
