I support OpenMedia.ca. It is a war out there right now to put chains and locks on media usage. Will communications stay open to the people, or will they be provided only to an elite few who can afford usage based billing? Open Media provides online campaigns to educate and empower citizens to defend and advance their communication interests, values and rights. It is a very important time right now to make sure that your voice is heard on laws about copyright and media usage.
OpenMedia.ca is a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization working to advance and support an open and innovative communications system in Canada.
Their goal? To increase public awareness and informed participation in Canadian media, cultural, information, and telecommunication policy formation. They strive to make media and telecommunications more transparent, with broader and more representative public participation. Thier job is to shine a spotlight on key media policy developments, and provide essential tools and information for citizen engagement.
You can be passive and hope all the right laws get passed, but I would encourage everyone to be active in the development of these new laws. Everyone who uses the internet will be affected by this. If open media matters to you please make your voice heard. Please sign the petition below to stop usage based billing on internet in Canada.
