New Westminster â€“ Burnaby MP Peter Julian has moved a motion in the House of Commons that aims to stop what he calls â€œgougingâ€� gouging on cellphone and internet service.
â€œIn any one month, half of Canadians are $200 away from insolvency, but successive Liberal and Conservative governments have allowed cellphone and internet prices to skyrocket,â€� said Julian. â€œThese are essential services, but the big telecoms have been allowed to gouge Canadians with impunity. That has to end. The NDP five-point plan would put measures in place to ensure this stops now.â€�
