Petition: Save SaskTel
We the undersigned residents of Canada draw the attention of the House to the following:
- THAT telecommunications is a federally regulated industry; and the federal government has struggled to foster competitive telecommunications at lower prices for consumers in Canada.
- THAT in Saskatchewan, telecom companies face stiff competition because SaskTel provides Saskatchewan residents with the lowest phone and internet rates in the country; and
- THAT because SaskTel is a publicly owned company- no sale of any portion of the company should occur without the consent of the people in the form of a referendum;
THEREFORE, we call on the Government of Canada to use whatever power it has to keep SaskTel public. Thereby ensuring the fostering of competitive telecommunication practices that provide fair prices and services to the people of Saskatchewan.
