What do you want to say to Minister Bains, Paov?

In just a few days, our OpenMedia community came... through with support to send us to Ottawa to meet with Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains. What an amazing response, thank you!

Now you can tell us what you would like to say to Minister Bains. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

There’s a lot we want to talk to the Minister about: A national broadband plan to ensure that everyone in Canada has access to reliable, high-speed Internet access1. Affordability, and the need to find ways to bring more choice and competition into our telecom market.

Minister Bains has the authority to bring more choice to our cell phone market, and lower costs2. He can overrule the CRTC and mandate access for services that have the ability to compete directly with “the Big Three”. And he’s the member of government most responsible for the future of the Internet in Canada.

We’ll be letting you know about how the meeting went just as soon as we can, but you can help make it a success today.

Whatever happens, Minister Bains will be left with no doubt that our OpenMedia community will be watching him closely during his time in office, holding him to account and demanding an open, affordable and surveillance-free Internet for everyone in Canada.

Thank you so much for all that you do.

Laura, and the whole OpenMedia team.

P.S. There’s still time to chip in to help organize our trip to meet with the Minister. You can donate here.
