    Who wouldn’t want hundreds of millions of dollars to do something that they are likely capable of without hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Bell also wants gov cash to provide high speed to rural areas. Many of which already have fiber going down old rail lines and such.

    I’m about 1k from one such line.

    We are so fcuked. Doesn’t matter what kind of hollering we do, the corporatocracy will always win. Look at what is going on in Quebec – students are protesting and the provincial gov’t goes ahead and gives the police the power to decide that a protest is illegal so they start lobbing tear gas and arresting people. The Harper Conservatives have no regard for personal freedom. WTF did all of those Canadians die for in all those wars?

    Canadians are so jaded that the majority of voters didn’t, and the so-called “Conservative majority government” really isn’t. This is what we get for being indifferent. I thought I was born and raised in a country that always stood up for the little guy – turns out we grab our ankles for corporate interests.

    We’ll bitch about everything over a double-double at Timmy’s, but we won’t do anything about it.

    Props to the kids in Quebec who aren’t taking any shit from their government. They have some brass oeufs in La Belle Province.

    From the Telcos perspective this is just a cash grab, an additional revenue stream they can cash in on, which will be bought and paid for by consumers…

    Canada: Building infrastructure using taxpayer money and giving it to corporations to use to gouge taxpayers, part of our rich heritage…
