Canadians pay some of the highest prices in the world for cell and internet access while rich telecom companies make billions in profits every year – and yet the Trudeau Liberals and Conservatives voted against the NDP's plan to lower your monthly bills and save you money.
It doesn't have to be this way.
Jagmeet Singh and the NDP have a plan to make your monthly bills more affordable:
No more huge bills. Every Canadian will save $10 on every cell or internet bill on average, thanks to price caps that make sure Canadians are paying a fair price no matter where they live.
No more data caps. Ending caps for internet plan and requiring companies to offer affordable, unlimited data plans for cellphones – so that there are no surprises at the end of the month.
Basic plans for better access. Every company will be required to have a basic plan for internet and cell service that meets the needs of Canadians.
Protecting Canadians. A Telecom Consumers’ Bill of Rights will put an end to the outrageous sales and services practices of big cell and internet companies and protect people from being gouged.
Selling the airwaves should benefit us. The government makes billions selling the right to provide cell and internet service – and people, not corporations, should benefit from that money.
Canadians deserve leaders who will use every tool available to make life more affordable for people and save them $10 on every phone and internet bill they pay, on average.
