Re: [Outages] tek you made cbc ottawa with your outages

said by redrain85:

There's a story about this now on the CBC site, but no audio version as far as I can tell.

»www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/st···ion.html

I think the story is pretty superficial. I find it amusing that Rogers is called "the provider" - I guess TSI and CBC can't call out Rogers for fear of being sued for libel, but anyone who is mired in this quagmire (like I am) knows that "the provider" is Rogers.

We should submit the story to "The Consumerist", where they can file it as another "Taking It Seriously" story - were companies "take stuff seriously" but don't or can't actually fix anything.

Don't forget who owns what Media conglomerates here in Canada too. Regulatory capture + Vertical integration = less choice.

Which is why you may or may not see stories like the CBC one in the other news outlets.

*Personally I don't mind the CBC so much as I find Kevin O'Leary a despicable snake they'd do better to get rid of. But thats just my opinion. He is after all just another vitriolic businessman.
