LabourStart Canada Endorses OpenMedia.ca Campaigns
This is a first for us. But a natural we think. Open Media.ca campaigns for freer, easier, cheaper and faster internet access for Canadians. Their latest is the online petition against internet metering that has almost 420,000 signatures on it.
It occurred to us that as more and more services, especially government services, are available only online, internet access has become (well, OK, it always was) a class issue.
A working class issue.
ISP fees will soon be public service user fees by another name. Or already are: ask rural Newfoundlanders what it means to have your regional Services Canada office close.
So: working class issue + internet = a natural for LabourStart Canada. So we're endorsing OpenMedia.ca.
Take a look, join their campaigns.
