Canadian PM Tweets That CRTC Usage Based Billing Decision Will Be Reviewed

This might be a shrewd use of social media to get votes, but Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper left this Tweet today on his Twitter feed:

We’re very concerned about CRTC’s decision on usage-based billing and its impact on consumers. I’ve asked for a review of the decision.

This is very good news for Canadian Internet users. You can expect that Bell, Rogers, and Telus don’t like this news as the last time that the Canadian government reviewed a decision that the CRTC made, the government gave Wind Mobile the green light to operate in Canada. Hopefully the decision comes before March 1st which is when usage based billing goes into effect. In the meantime, I would suggest that Canadians Tweet the Prime Minister as well as use on-line petitions such as this one to let Canadian politicians know how craptastic this decision is.

When the Canadian government is done with this issue, perhaps they can move on to abolishing the CRTC?
