Loud TV ads to be a thing of the past...

A story on The Star.com last week caught my interest, reporting that television broadcasters have been mandated by the CRTC, Canada's broadcast regulator, to ensure that the volume of the ads being run is no louder than the volume of the accompanying programming. Broadcasters have until September 1st to comply (a similar law went into effect in the U.S. last year). As an apartment dweller, I've had to make it a habit to always have my remote close at hand in order to not piss off my neighbours due to the annoyingly louder volume of TV commercials, so this is welcome news.
