Our Member of Parliament is calling on Ottawa to quote give consumers a break.
In a recent report, Niki Ashton says that telecommunications companies are acting deliberately to limit the rights of consumers, and that the Trudeau Government needs to step up to the plate to protect Canadians.
Ashton says that a recent report from the CRTC shows that phone and internet companies are using aggressive and misleading marketing tactics at the expense of consumers.
She says that the report also reveals the unfair practices of 12 Canadian service providers which significantly impacted vulnerable members of society such as seniors, people with disabilities, and people whose first language is not English or French.
The NDP caucus is calling on Ottawa to launch an investigation into how the rights and privacy of citizens have been violated.
