We need leaders with the courage to stand up to huge telecom companies that are gouging Canadians – and make sure that everyone has cell and internet access.
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 Trudeau's Liberal government keeps giving these big telecoms corporations hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies and government contracts while Canadians are forced to pay outrageous cell phone and internet rates across the country.
These are services Canadians rely on for work and school, and they need them to stay connected to family and friends – but prices are skyrocketing, and families are facing bills in the hundreds every month. People need leaders who have the courage to stand up to these massive corporations and make sure Canadians are getting a fair price for fair service.
That's why Jagmeet Singh and our NDP MPs are fighting to lower cell and internet costs – so Canadians can get better access at better prices and have a more affordable life.
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 plans 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 everyday people, not mega corporations, should benefit from that money.
Canadians deserve a government that will take their budget seriously – and that will work for people, not the interests of wealthy corporations.
