The idiocy, it burns! SpaceX (Starlink) and Telesat were invited to give testimony in front of Canadian politicians on rural broadband access.
Starlink isn't a good solution for rural broadband. It's better than nothing but countries like Canada should be aiming much higher, otherwise people in rural areas will just be stuck with outdated broadband again.
Fibre is the only technology fit for the next decades, gigabit+ speeds and ultra low, consistent latency. Starlink is great and all but the speeds and latency are already on the low side and will only continue to fall behind as fibre becomes more common and the Starlink system gets more subscribers (and therefore less bandwith per user).
