Submission + - Telus to offer adult material over cell service

icepick72 writes: Canadian B.C. businessman Gordon Keast is suing Telus, a North American phone carrier, after the company refused to let him out of a three-year cellphone contract because he objects to Telus offering what he says is a pornography service. Meanwhile a priest in Vancouver is urging Catholics to boycott Telus because of the adult content. Telus is the first North American provider to directly offer such a service. While the priest is directing others regarding this issue, the businessman just wants out — should he be allowed to break his contract? (Cue jokes: A Canadian businessman, a Telus representative and a priest go fishing ...)
