Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Canada's broadcasters and cable companies are the biggest ripoff and scam artists on the face of the earth.  They never report any real news, ignore and gouge consumers.  This is how we improve the state of both industries through competition and empower consumers.    Help break up this criminal monopoly/oligopoly by sending the following letter postage-free (within Canada) to the Minister.
