OTTAWA – Statement by Green Leader Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands, about Open Media’s Time for an Upgrade campaign:
“Canadians are frustrated with the limited options offered to them by cell phone service providers. This lack of competitiveness leads to high prices. The situation gets even more exasperating when our costs are compared to what users pay in other countries.
“It is time for the government to help create affordable, world-class telecom services. Following on their success with the C-30 campaign, Open Media is standing once again for Canadian consumers. I encourage you to visit Open Media’s website [openmedia.ca/upgradeCanada], read their report, and take action so Canadians finally get access to a world-class telecoms system.”
