Rabble: Nearly half of Canada's lowest income earners don't have broadband access

Posted August 22, 2014

ACORN Canada members are calling on the federal government and the CRTC to ensure home broadband prices are affordable for low income families.
 
Specifically, ACORN believes households below the low-income measure should be able to access high-speed internet for $10/month along with measures to ensure families can afford computers at a reasonable price.
 
Listen to audio from the rally held by Toronto ACORN Thursday outside the Bell Trinity Square offices of Bell Canada. Thursday's rally in Toronto was part of a national day of action coordinated by ACORN Canada.
