Complaints over the throttling of Internet traffic – in apparent violation of industry regulations if not ‘Net neutrality aspirations – are themselves being slowed.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has delayed its ruling on a dispute involving Bell Canada and third party Internet Service Providers over Internet data rates and throughput.
The CRTC now says it will rule on the fight between Bell and the Canadian Association of Internet Providers (CAIP) by Oct. 31. “
Clearly the CRTC is in someone’s back pocket for the CRTC is not speedily working on behalf of the many complaining Canadian citizens
Believe it or not, face it or not Bad and abusive Corporations, churches, pastors, cops, in fact all bad persons are often the number one concerns of many people, on the net too, many citizens, in every province, Canada wide too, and yet this is an area where the too often pretentious government, poor ministers, that have wrongfully also hired too often their pretentious friends into key and secondary jobs now too, are clearly wrongfully not doing enough now here too… but they still steal, take a big salary, with perks, expenses accounts wrongfully for it too.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/06/03/corupted/
A Canadian consumer cancelling their cell phone, or their Home Phone or their Internet service provider and any the supposedly applicable termination fees, related early cell phone termination fees supreme court ruling in the US FIRSTLY does not apply in Canada since the Telecommunication industry and the ISP, Internet service providers are all still unregulated by the governments, all of them, neither the customers or the corporations, providers they they generally are not subject to any possible COURT DISPUTES SETTLEMENTS, REGULATIONS, AND even if Rogers or Bell tries to tell you otherwise? and tries to enforce their cancellation fees? They Corporations they have to rely on the good will of their customers to pay these inapplicable contract, termination charges in Canada? True or false?
Some persons still do argue that when you agree to the contract with a carrier for that new phone even for free or at a discounted rate, or an ISP, Iphone services it was understood what you were doing entering into a legally bind contract so do explain to me what the point of a contract is… when you can just get out of it at any time with no deterrent? or Bell itself often as is it often the case now too does not keep their promised contractual commitments, and secondly their CONTRACT CLAUSES, agreements, clauses are so one sided, unfair the the COURTS TEND NOT SUPPORT THEM NOW AS WELL.
“A California Supreme Court judge has ruled that early-termination fees on cell phone contracts are illegal. This is HUGE. Contracts and early-termination fees basically define the cell phone industry in the United States. Could we be headed for a major change if this decision holds? By locking consumers into 1 to 2-year contracts with an early-termination fee tacked on, carriers are able to guarantee a certain amount of revenue from their subscribers. By doing this, they are able to offer subsidies on the actual hardware. This is why the iPhone 3G is only $199, but requires a 2-year contract. This is completely different from Europe and other markets where consumers pay full price for their hardware, but are not forced to sign any contracts. There will be appeals by the cell carriers, but if this holds, what could happen? Early termination fees put the power in the hands of the carrier. How many times have you heard a friend say they would love to get a new phone or switch carriers only to shoot down their idea because they are under contract for another year? In some cases, it could even be cheaper to pay for two contracts instead of paying the early termination fee on one. So, let’s assume this decision holds, and carriers aren’t legally allowed to charge these fees, we’ll probably either see the carriers attempt to work around the legal problems through a loophole or the abolition of cell phone contracts. Hooray! Except, cheap handsets are the first thing to follow contracts out the door. Most people don’t realize that cell phones are actually fairly expensive pieces of hardware after years and years of discounted, subsidized prices. In the end, it’s hard to say if the consumer will save money out of contract, but with a full-priced device. It’ll depend on the plans, which could increase in price in response. So if we might not actually save any money, what will be gained by this decision? Freedom. Some cell phone carriers are notorious for poor customer service because they probably don’t feel like going out of their way to help their customers when they have them locked into a contract. Without contracts, a greater responsibility to appease and provide for the customer falls on the carriers. Suddenly, threats to cancel service and move to a competitor could have meaning. Carriers would have to fight to keep you as a customer. Pair this up with the trend of moving toward open networks that must accept any device and you’ve got the making of a European style cell phone market. That is, of course, if the carriers don’t just find a loophole. You can be sure their best lawyers are on the case. On the hardware side, most phones would end up being sold unlocked. We wouldn’t be surprised if the retail market for devices moves online or into big box retailers, while the service is sold by carriers. Sure, they’d sell phones too, but suddenly a whole new market complete with competition could open for unlocked handsets. If you were suddenly able to break your contract without consequence, would you switch carriers? Are you patiently waiting for your contract to end so you can get a new phone or upgrade? http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/687741/No_Early_Termination_Fees_Will_The_Cell_Market_Completely_Change.html
do see the many Post about Bell here too..
In Canada the RCMP certainly admits to monitoring the net.. MICROSOFT HAS HELPED THEM IN THIS MATTER TOO. THEY DO ALSO NOTE WHAT YOU WRITE ABOUT THE RCMP FIRSTLY??? BUT THEY HAVE A HARD TIME CATCH THE BAD RCMP OFFICERS FIRSTLY STILL AND WHY IS THAT?.. yes the RCMP who is so ready to monitor others cannot monitor itself properly..
In my view they the RCMP are still the bad apple, a very poor watchdog, and clearly discriminatory, racists LIKELY too, mostly white AND English speaking BAD COPS, and the bad RCMP, SEEM even too often guilty of privacy invasion now too itself, for they tends to monitor, to investigate anyone in Canada too, me too, at their political master’s requests, and along with the local major police services, post office now too, has hundreds of thousands of files on even the innocent citizens in Canada..
Here in Canada I had attended some political meetings at the request of a neighbor of mine, a lawyer, who worked for city hall, shortly after that the same neighbor had told me that the local police had next complied a report on me at the request of the mayor, for apparently it was common practice for the mayor to use the police services to evaluate all of his possible political opponents. No wonder the main jail was across from the mayor’s office too. Next the same lawyer told me that the provincial government also had a RCMP report on me as well done by police.. and apparently I was classified as a religious terrorist because I also do talk about Jesus. .. there really is no no such thing as privacy in Canada.. I understand that the Post office office has a database on the citizens of Canada in PEI as well.

Coming back to the bad RCMP now
No matter how that dirty RCMP weasel spins the facts, tries to weasel out of the truth, the RCMP was clearly wrong on many counts in the Taser death of a polish immigrant at the Vancouver airport.. they were uncompassionate, inconsiderate, used more restraining force than was necessary, and they next also clearly lied to cover-up their own immoral acts, and many times as well, They slander a good man in the process as well.. and so none of this was, is acceptable or forgivable.. none of it. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/the-mickey-mouse-rcmp-in-canada
AND it seems they are not effective in catching the real crimimmials, and they are a really costly, EXPENSIVE bunch of guys now too, WHO OFTEN DO HAVE USE THE NEWS MEDIA, PUBLIC RELATIONSHIP TO TRY TO SELL THEIR SUPPOSED RESULTS TO US ALL BECAUSE IT IS NOT CLEARLY OBVIOUS TO US ALL OTHERWISE..
Police love to lie and say that all accidents are mostly speed related, to justify their fat cow cash grabs, especially in Alberta and in Ontario now too.. they lump all of their homemade statistics as the accidents, deaths realted all to speeding.. not in reality to drunk driver, bad drivers, road rage, poor roads, bad snow cleaing..
THE ALBERTA CANMORE RCMP JUSTIFIES COLLECTING SUPPOSEDLY MILLIONS of DOLLARS in MONEY ON SPEEDING TICKETS IN BANFF TO SAVE THE LIFE OF A FEW DEERS TOO IT SEEMS. What about the drunk drivers, cops included firstly?
In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own
They the RCMP seem to be afraid of the real bad guys to go after them and it appears that the the RCMP that is so busy trying to catch the innocent citizen that it has NO MONEY, time or competency to catch the BIG major criminals, the major drug pushers, the major hackers, major counterfeiters, murderers, rapists, bank robbers, commercial crimminals too, or even allof the drunk drivers, and so a special police force now had to be made in Alberta to go even after the drunk drivers, meanwhile the bad RCMP officers like many other cops themselves likely abuse the laws too, all undeniable as well. The pretentious, inadequate, incompetent Mickey Mouse RCMP should have been disbanded a long time ago and replaced with a decent police force as I have often rightfully requested this now too.
PLEASE DON’T GET ME WRONG, THE RCMP HAVE NOT EARNED MY RESPECT, AND THEY NOW DO NOT GET IT AUTOMATICALLY , FOR EVERY TIME I CALLED THEM TO BE OF SERVICE THEY DID NOTHING GOOD FOR ME THE LAST FEW DECADES TOO. THEY LIED , MISSPELLED MY NAME TOO. They had even threatened to shut me up for good if I myself did not shut up in Canmore, Alberta now too.
I REALLY DO HAVE NO USE FOR THEM. ALL THEY SEEM TO BE GOOD FOR IS GIVING OUT REVENUE GENERATING VEHICULAR TRAFFIC TICKETS or killing a person with a Taser? http://inkslwc.wordpress.com/2007/11/17/royal-canadian-mounted-police-taser-man-in-vancouver-resulting-in-his-death/
Did any RCMP officer yet get arrested for that in Vancouver to date? Me too I couldn’t stop shaking my head as I read the latest in Canadian cops and their use of tasers. So not only are we the country that tasers non-English speaking tourists to death in airports, apparently we also taser 17 year old boys to death, and use repetitive taser shots to subdue an 82 year old man who is in hospital.. we pay big money and what we do hire mickey mouse cops who too often are incompetent, pretentious, no good.. abusive too?
Useless Royal Canadian Mounted Police another big expensive Joke.. clearly mismanaged often too..
CP VANCOUVER – While RCMP brass and its media relations division scrambled to keep from being “crucified” over Taser use and the death of a man at Vancouver’s airport, they also had to deal with an increasing barrage of complaints accusing officers of being everything from clowns to killers. Email documents, released to The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, showed great concern from Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day’s office down to the RCMP’s British Columbia media relations office over the public’s perception about the death of Robert Dziekanski. “I am going to get some advice, but I think I might wade in here to set some of the record straight with the media,” RCMP Chief Supt. Dale McGowan wrote in an email to the Cmdr. Peter German. “We are being crucified on why the Taser usage and our members’ actions at the preliminary stages.” German later replied that he had “just watched the Taser video on BBC TV in Australia!” Weeks before, RCMP media spokesman Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre wrote to management that Cpl. Dale Carr – the media spokesman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team – had concluded there was a possibility of an “international incident” because of Dziekanski’s death. In one email days after the death, Day’s office issues an “urgent” request to RCMP to see the latest media lines Mounties have sent out on the Taser incident. Lemaitre outlined suggestions for what the RCMP should tell the media, including that the death was being reviewed on several levels and that the investigation was continuing. On October 14, 2007 Dziekanski spent hours in the international arrivals area at the Vancouver airport before he was confronted by four RMCP officers. A bystander’s video of the confrontation shows the officers attempting a brief conversation with the confused and sweating Polish man before Dziekanski was jolted twice with a Taser. He died minutes after the officers pinned him to the ground. Sgt. Tim Shields – who has just taken over the communications section at E Division in Vancouver – said in an interview last week that the entire issue has hurt the Mounties’ public image. “Yes, of course it has,” he said. “And we hope that when more of the facts are made public … it will present a clearer picture of truly what happened.” The eyewitness video was seized by officers at the scene for evidence, and the owner later threatened legal action to get it back, saying he wanted to release what he recorded to the media. In the hours after the death, Lemaitre told the media that officers at the scene attempted to calm the man, but they felt threatened. When the eyewitness video was finally released, it showed police using the Taser less than half-a-minute after first confronting the man. After the tape was aired around the world, the RCMP were inundated with angry emails. “Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre should be fired for purposely misrepresenting the facts and suppressing the video on a false premise,” wrote one person who’s name was removed from the documents. “It appears you have been caught in an outright lie,” wrote another, whose name was also stripped from the email. The email had a subject line reading “state-sanctioned murder.” Lemaitre told one correspondent he had to work with the information that he was given by the investigation team, and he suggested that if he had it to do over again, he would have said nothing. “In the world of communications, police have often been criticized for not giving details and/or information regarding an incident resulting in allegations that we are hiding something,” Lemaitre wrote. He told the complainant several investigations will reveal why officers did what they did. “As for myself, as a spokesperson, in the future, I will consider saying that we have no comment, there’s an ongoing investigation, and weather the storm of media criticism that we are not forthcoming.” Despite Lemaitre’s comment, Shields said police haven’t changed the way they deal with the media. “We have to ensure that we have an open relationship with the media because we rely on the media to get the message out to the public,” he said. Another member of the public wrote asking police “So how are you going to lie your way out of this one?” and made reference to the Mahar Arar where RCMP handed over inaccurate information about the Canadian man to U.S. authorities. “You clowns are nothing but a sad, expensive joke,” the writer ended. Later correspondence grew increasing hostile and is riddled with foul language. Some are even threatening. “When will charges of manslaughter be brought against the officers?” asks a member of the public. “Seeing as there will be no proper action taken against the criminals, I should hope a similar fate befalls their families.” Carr and Lemaitre responded to several of the writers. It is vitriol Shields said he’s never seen before from the public. “After the millions of good things that we have done, it was very disheartening to see that level of backlash and anger from the public.” Not all the emails were negative. Chris Newel of the Clearwater RCMP wrote to Lemaitre suggesting police put out a news release indicating how many times a Taser was used successfully. “I see on the news eight people have died in five years – that’s about 1.5 a year. How many would have died if we didn’t have the Taser?” Newel wondered. “Of those eight, how many had pre-existing conditions that likely contributed, if not were the cause, of death?” “Thanks for that,” Lemaitre replied. “Stand by for the autopsy results! We might be in for a surprise, like Tasers didn’t kill this guy, pre-existing medical conditions and or drugs in the system, wait and see.” No drugs or alcohol were found in Dziekanski’s body, but the cause of death still hasn’t been released. A briefing document written in November 2007 for RCMP Commissioner William Elliott said it was the B.C.’s Coroner’s Office that left police in an embarrassing position after RCMP refused to release the bystander’s video before it was used at the coroner’s inquest. Elliott said the coroner, “in an unprecedented action and in contradiction to his request of the prior week,” sent a letter to the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team saying the coroner’s office instead had no problem with the videotape being released. “This left no legal basis for the videotape to be held,” Elliott wrote. The reverberations from Dziekanski’s death and the release of the videotape are still being felt, with most of the investigations ongoing, including a public inquiry which will begin hearing witnesses testify in October about the night Dziekanski died. The B.C. Crown is looking at a police report into whether charges should be laid against the officers involved. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/080817/national/airport_taser_rcmp
Replace the useless RCMP and the useless Security Minister too..

The Green Party of British Columbia said Tuesday the RCMP is not accountable to the public and promised to replace the force in B.C. if the party wins the May 12 election.AND IT REALLY BUGS ME THAT ME POSTING MESSAGES ABOUT POLITICIANS SINS OR THOSE OF COPS GET THE MOST FALSE PROTESTS..
4 RCMP OFFICERS TELL THE SAME LIES AND WE ARE TOLD TO BELIEVE THEY ALL MADE THE SAME MISTAKES.. DREAM ON… THESE SUPPOSED MISTAKES , LIES, WERE ALL CLEARLY MADE TO COVER UP FOR THE VISIBLY BAD RCMP OFFICERS
“The deaths of Ian Bush and Robert Dziekanski are examples of recent failures to provide helpful enforcement services to the people of B.C.,” Green party Leader Jane Sterk said in a news release.
Bush, 22, died in police custody in July 2005 from a gunshot wound to the head after a fight with an officer.
The mill worker was arrested after being found with an open beer outside a hockey game in Houston, B.C.
Dziekanski, 40, died after being hit five times with a Taser by an RCMP officer at the Vancouver International Airport in October 2007.
The details of the Polish immigrant’s death, which was captured on camera by a bystander, are currently being investigated by an inquiry.
“The Green party would end the RCMP E Division contract and replace the RCMP with a new B.C. police service. The B.C. police service would no longer make use of Taser electric weapons, and would be subject to civilian oversight under the auspices of an independent provincial police commissioner,” she added.
>>….. Well recently in Manitoba the NDP scam was finally revealed but RCMP refuse to do anything, Nova Scotia same thing, at least in Sask the RCMP are doing something which is almost shocking. When a politician admits to any type of illegal scheme the RCMP should be in there like flies on sh@t, not whining its not their job, This is proof it is their job, but hey its Canada the public don’t seem to count for sh@t…
Bad Liberals, bad Conservatives, bad NDP, Bad BQ, bad RCMP, bad anyone still do need to be prosecuted in reality.. for they basically are not good for anyone.
RCMP launched a criminal investigation and who has launched a criminal investigation against the bad cops, bad RCMP firstly?
There in reality is the main one important step that all consumers can take to protect themselves from any unscrupulous persons and that is enforced, exemplary public exposure and prosecution of the supposedly guilty persons by a recognized judicial public body, and so now how many such bad persons now have really been exposed, prosecuted in the last few years in reality too by all, the responsible Ministers as well? None? and why not? Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves very ones best interest… too often still missing in the civil and public services, governments, PROFESSIONAL BODIES, EVEN IN THE RCMP, police forces, churches, as well it seems too. “about the ABUSERS, bullies, thugs, proud oppressors, war mongers “ THERE IS A VERY BASIC COMMON MISCONCEPTION ON HOW TO DEAL WITH ANY PERCEIVED EVEN INJUSTICES, ABUSES, ANYWHERE, IN THE CHURCH AS WELL, BESIDES IMMEDIATELY CALLING THE LOCAL POLICE.. THE NEW TESTAMENT IS CLEAR HOW TO DEAL WITH IT.. COMMUNICATION – AND YOU DON’T FIRST POST IT ALL ON THE NET. First you merely ask the guilty, bad persons personally to repent twice, the first time without a witness, the second time with witnesses THAT you have asked them to repent.. and proof, substantiation is NOT required.. after you have done that you can next post it openly on the net, tell all the others. Next God is fully free to deal with the unrepentant guilty offenders and believe me he will.. I have now been doing for decades too.. I SIMPLY SEND AN EMAIL, I PUT IT INTO CLEARLY WRITING, SO THE GUILTY PARTY CANNOT SAY I DID NOT ASK HIM OR HER TO REPENT. WHETHER THEY ACKNOWLEDGE IT OR NOT TO GOD DOES NOT MATTER. THE POLICE, RCMP, MINISTERS, GOVERNMENT CONSULTANTS THESE DAYS, IMMIGRANT CONSULTANTS TOO IT SEEMS , SEEM TO BE ANOTHER WORD FOR ABUSERS, THIEVES, LIARS CROOKS. SO WE ALL NEED TO DEAL WITH IT MORE EFFECTIVELY NOW TOO
