Serious stuffs: Canadian anipals help stop greedy media company peoples putting charges on our interwebs

Anipals this is a call to action! Help stop greedy media company peoples putting super big charges on our interwebs. Your country needs you.

My person just put this on her bloggeh and I thought I should do the same here. This is what she wrote:

The CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) has agreed to let Canadian internet service providers charge customers based on how much they use the internet.

Please do your bit to stop these large media companies charging excessive amounts.

According to OpenMedia (quoted in this video below) it costs these companies a penny for 1GB of bandwidth usage. They want to charge customers up to $4 per GB.

George Stroumboulopoulos explains more in this video below. Please sign this petition to stop the nonsense.
