BREAKING NEWS: Canadian Government Grows A Pair And Agrees To Review Globalive/Wind Mobile Decision

Will wonders never cease? According to the Globe And Mail, the Canadian Government has agreed to review the CRTC decision to deny Globealive/Wind Mobile the right to operate in Canada. Tony Clement who is the Industry Minister had this to say to the Globe And Mail:

Mr. Clement says the government believes in competition in the telecom industry.

He says the addition of new cell phone companies is going to be of benefit for consumers.

Wow. There is hope for a competitive wireless market in Canada. This is the best news that one could hear on a Friday afternoon. Now the question becomes, will the Canadian Government actually do the right thing and overturn the CRTC decision. If they really wanted to impress me, they could just destroy the CRTC along with reversing this decision. To borrow a phrase from the movie “Aliens”, nuke them from space. It’s the only way to be sure.

It’s time for Canadians to put pressure on their Government.  Start e-mailing your MP’s today if you want a competitive wireless market in Canada.
