Thanks to you, our #DontCensor billboard is now up in Toronto!

Just in time for the day of action to protest Bell coalition’s website blocking plan, our #DontCensor billboard is now up in Toronto. Once again, this would have not been possible without the support of our community — thank you!

Today, OpenMedia is holding a national Day of Action against website blocking, in partnership with over 30 other companies and organizations, and tens of thousands of Canadians.

Why? Because Bell Canada has spearheaded an effort at the CRTC to institute new website blocking, that will lead to censorship, and undermine net neutrality.

But we’re not going to let them get away with it. As a part of our day of action, we’re putting the spotlight on Bell’s proposal, with a massive billboard right in the heart of downtown Toronto, at Yonge and Dundas Square.

This 30 feet by 40 feet billboard just took our Day of Action to the next level and we couldn’t have done it without our community having our back. Thank you for your donations, shares, and ongoing support. You make our work possible.

We'd also like to give a special thanks to our friends at SumOfUs for teaming up with us on this one!  

Check out these photos of the billboard, located right on Yonge and Dundas square in Toronto (if you happen to walk by, send us a pic!).

And please don’t forget to join the day of action and spread the word! Our goal is to gather at least 50,000 comments to the CRTC by the end of the day.
