Commentaire / Comment
I am not in favor of the CRTC’s proposed plan (Telecom Notice of Consultation CRTC 2017-92) to phase-out the local service subsidy regime. This subsidy was designed to keep wireline voice service affordable in high cost serving areas and the phase-out will impact roughly 100,000 Saskatchewan households that still rely on the local voice subsidy for affordable telephone service.

I and many of my family members and friends live outside of a major city center in Saskatchewan, either living in small communities or on farms. If this phase-out happens this will affect us significantly financially!! There have been so many things at a government level that have changed recently (subsidies taken away) which means that our property taxes have gone way up, personal taxes and wages have taken a hit and other utilities as well have gone up - now this!!

I really hope that the CRTC listens to those who oppose this and it is not put this action!!

Thank you.
