Liberals prioritizing big corporations at the expense of Canadians « Canada’s NDP

July 11, 2022 at 8:00 am  Federal, Politics

Canada’s NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh made the following statement:

“After days of Rogers outages, many Canadians and businesses still cannot access services they need to work. Over the weekend, emergency services were inaccessible, meaning that people were unable to call 9-1-1 during life-threatening emergencies. This is deeply upsetting and unacceptable.

Minister Champagne meeting with Rogers as a top priority shows that the Liberals are fixated on protecting the profits of telecom giants instead of helping Canadians. People need accountability here— what happened was unacceptable.

We will be looking at bringing Rogers, Interac and Minister Champagne to committee to figure out what happened, and to make sure this never happens again. The NDP is calling on the Liberals and the CRTC to launch a formal investigation into the Rogers outage to get to the bottom of this for Canadians. New Democrats also believe that Rogers has a responsibility to pay back small businesses that lost revenue during the outage.”
