Canadians Should Make Like the Egyptians

I didn't know about it until right now, which is absolutely shameful. The CRTC, the Canadian Radio and Television Commission of Canada, just approved a motion through which the major broadband providers in the country can now charge Canadians on the basis of "usage based billing". Which translates pretty much into a pay-per-use method, where the companies get to set the price.

We could be charged for every GB we use!

Having a 60GB cap on the internet during the Web 2.0 world is just ridiculous. We have to fight this. Or else we're going to end up doing this.



So head on over to

Sign, and start spreading the word and fighting.
