Journal Journal: Canadian Do Not Call List Goes Live

Years after the United Stated implemented one, the Canadian government has finally implemented a Do Not Call List. Canadians can finally register their phone numbers on the list and telemarketers have 31 days to remove registered numbers from their call lists. Failure to do so can lead up to fines of $15,000 per offense. Political parties, charities, newspapers and businesses with whom you've had a business relationship in the last 18 months are exempt and can still continue to call you in the middle of dinner. Just how effective has the US DNC registry been, and will this mean some relief for Canadians?
