Everyday Canadians are already paying more to use their cell phone than subscribers in the US and Europe, yet two of Canada’s largest cellular providers are planning to gouge you further.
Starting in August, many ordinary consumers will be charged a fee each time they receive an incoming text message – including spam and unwanted messages. My former plan allowed me to add on $5.00 per month for unlimited text messaging, both incoming and outgoing. But it appears that my $5.00 isn't enough for the cellular providers anymore.
It doesn't matter if you're an NDP'er, a Liberal, Conservative, a Greener, or a Marijuana Party supporter, nobody wants to pay more for text messaging. Help stop the text message cash-grab. Sign the petition now at ndp.ca.
