Judging by the remarkable grassroots response from Canadians, it's clear that Big Telecom has totally misjudged the national mood. They're wasting millions on misleading propaganda and expensive ads that almost nobody believes. Canadians are uniting against the lies of Big Telecom in a big way, and the results have been spectacular.
With a new report from the OECD placing Canada in 32nd place (out of 34) in terms of cell phone prices, the question is clear: Why is Canada falling so far behind the rest of the industrialized world? Our high prices are the direct result of the fact that 94 per cent of our broken wireless market is controlled by just three giant Big Telecom conglomerates. Many Canadians have no alternative to the high-cost Big Three.
Here Warren Kinsella's oft-repeated maxim rings true. In Kinsella's latest book he states that what is true of car crashes is true of political life. When polled, voters will insist they hate negative ads. But when they thinking no one is looking they will slow down, take a look, and remember what they see.
