Comma Chameleon

This little mishap and the subsequent cancelling of the contract leaves me to believe that:

1) Aliant is run by a bunch of weasels who knew they were going to pull this crap; and

2) The CRTC should be replaced immediately by people with a little common sense.

Surely an introductory clause or explanation at the beginning of the contract would have clearly outlined the fact that the deal was for 5 years and that after that, the deal could be terminated with one year's notice. You don't sit down and negotiate stuff like this without commenting something along the lines of "after the first 5 year period, we can then renew, but you can terminate the new period with one year's notice."

Sometimes the legalese gets in the way of common sense.
