Statement welcoming Trudeau & Joly’s decision to rule out an Internet Tax

Prime Minister Trudeau and Heritage Minister Melanie Joly have firmly ruled out an Internet Tax. Not surprisingly, we're giving this move a warm welcome.

“We warmly welcome this morning’s statements from Prime Minister Trudeau and Heritage Minister Joly firmly ruling out an Internet Tax. It’s clear that the government has listened carefully to the over 30,000 Canadians who warned that this proposal would further raise our monthly bills and worsen our digital divide. There was enormous pressure from backroom lobbyists behind this idea, and the government should be commended for resisting this pressure and standing up for Canadian Internet users.”
