mandelbr0t's Journal: Big Telecom to become election issue? 1

Journal by mandelbr0t

OpenMedia.ca has become the commoner's lobbyist voice against the CRTC and Big Telecom. The latest CRTC directive, to impose some sort of usage based billing on all Canadian Internet customers through their wholesale pricing is nothing more than a monopolistic price gouge. Through our support of Stop the Meter, we have gained ground against the CRTC. They have backed off UBB in favour of a different model. However, we've not won yet. Elections in Alberta and Canada allow us to choose MPs and MLAs who will see the wisdom in the OpenMedia position, and ignore the wealthy media conglomerates lobbying for legal restrictions on our Internet usage.
