This week was not a good day for the Canadian internet. In case you haven’t heard, the Canadian courts instituted site blocking for the first time this week.
Which companies fought for site blocking? Believe it or not, the exact same companies who seized all of our founder’s property without trial: Bell, Rogers, Videotron, and others.
What further aggravates the situation is that the Canadian Telecom Cartel tried to petition the telecom regulator and the government for site blocking. They were denied on both occasions!
They said “to hell with the legislative branch,” and went to the courts to try to force the issue into law instead. And so far it’s working.
Who’s fighting against site blocking becoming a thing? Only one ISP, and their name is TekSavvy. And TekSavvy not only offers better pricing than the big boys, but provides better service and constantly fights for the rights of regular Canadians.
Best of all, subscribe to their service and they’ll deal with cancelling your Bell, Rogers or Videotron service for you. That way you won’t lose a day without internet.
Ask yourself: would you rather give your money to a company that violates your rights, or one that defends them?
