Wireless reform a dropped call

Some of your correspondents have rightfully chastised the media for buying into the propaganda game recently perpetrated upon us by the “visit” of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

However these mandarins are guilty of even worse subterfuge.

Many Canadians have protested to the government about the high rates of wireless communication imposed upon us by the “big three.”

In order to pacify us peasants, the government and its corporate sponsors loudly orchestrated the auction of bandwidth which would increase competition and lower prices. Sounds good.

But at the same time, these scoundrels passed legislation that had the effect of scaring off other investors so there is, in effect, no change.
