Ironically the first paragraph of both the Edwards Act and the Curtis Act, Canada and America's first media licensing laws, say in their first pararaph that the  primary responsibility of the tenants, the renters of our public airwaves, is actually not their profit, it is the protection of the public good, our public good! .
