Stop the Cap – Get Involved !

More than 160,000 ordinary Canadians have signed a petition telling telecom companies to back off their Internet Overcharging schemes.  The NDP has adopted an anti-Overcharging position, and now, an ally of ours, is spearheading an effort to get the larger Liberal Party involved in the fight against Internet ripoffs.

Deep pocketed cable and phone companies have invaded Ottawa with their lobbyists and friends to try and keep your broadband bill as high as possible. We can trump their hand, but only if you get involved.

With Canadian government pressure, the CRTC will fold like a wet newspaper.  Openmedia is trying to collect a historic 200,000 signatures, and starting today every signature will send e-mail to the inbox of Michael Ignatieff and Liberal Party Digital Critic Pablo Rodriguez, encouraging them to join the fight.

If you don’t want to pay through the roof for your broadband, hurry and add your name to the petition.  Ottawa has been surprised by the backlash from everyday consumers from BC to PEI.  Now let’s deliver the death blow to Internet Overcharging and tell Bell, Rogers, and Shaw to enjoy the fat profits they already earn, and stop the gouging.
