Strange News Stories

Listening to the 7:00 news. Barry Burns says that Canada is lagging
behind other nations when it comes to cellphone use, a fact which makes
me feel a lot better about the fact that I'm considering dropping my
cellphone entirely after my contract runs out. The wording of the report
almost suggests befuddlement over the fact that fewer Canadians have
cellphones than Americans. The answer is clear enough to anyone who has
had cause to compare the prices in the two countries: Canadian cellphone
plans suck compared to their US counterparts. It really is as simple as
that. Try to find a cellphone plan that offers nationwide calling and
nationwide roaming and charges you a monthly fee of less than hundreds
of dollars. I love this country, but the fact is that our cell providers
are shooting themselves in the foot at every turn.
