The current government, the Conservatives lead by Stephen Harper, have said they will kill this proposal regardless (great way to get votes- he just swayed my opinion of the conservatives).
There's two problems here:
1) The market, not the government, should determine the viability of tiered internet.
2) Canada prides itself on being an economy, at least partially, that is fueled by it's high-tech sector. Imposing regulations that will provide impediments to accessing the internet, the backbone of a high-tech society, can only have negative consquences.
