OpenMedia McGill’s Cell Phone Horror Story workshop was a great success! We gathered in Arts W-5 to discuss OpenMedia.ca’s Cell Phone Horror Story Campaign while enjoying some delicious pizza. For those of you who were unable to attend, decision makers at the CRTC have finally agreed to develop national rules to protect cell phone users, as cell phone companies have essentially been using laws to undo regulations that protect consumers. The big three cell phone conglomerates, (Bell, Telus, and Rogers) control an astounding 94% of the market. We had a great time at the workshop, and reviewed the ways in which you can contribute your opinion to the development of national rules that help protect cell phone users.
If you would like to find out more about how to submit your own comment, we will be posting an informational sheet that will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to submit a comment to the CRTC. Keep in mind, all comments made to the CRTC must be made by December 4th, 2012.
Otherwise, if you have a Cell Phone Horror Story that you would like to share with the CRTC, please visit http://www.cellphonehorrorstory.ca and sign the petition!
