    I hope Elon’s Starlink satellite internet comes in soon and takes a big dump on Rogers and Bell

  3. Some places don’t even have clean drinking water, let alone high speed internet

    Classic Trudeau, bragging how much more money he is going to borrow from the banks. We are going to see the worst economic recovery of the G7 countries…how will we pay for this????

    • There is no recovering from this economic collapse- now is the time society create new systems else be forced into a prison society

  5. “but, it has to go through our servers in China in partnership with Hwawai for you to qualify, which you are required to agree to by law, which forbids you from criticizing the gov’t, or else you can’t use the internet…”
    Yeah, I can see what they’re trying here. Censorship isn’t enough, they want to gate-keep too.

    Why are taxpayers paying for equipment that private companies use to over charge Canadians.

  7. Giving money to a losing satellite company? Elon’s got this Justin. You’re way too little too late.

  8. How about you help increase competition (which spurs investment) in our wireless sector and you won’t have to worry about government “ïnvestments” paid for by taxpayers

  9. What a waste of investment when we have starlink on the way.

  10. Why stop with socializing the internet, go all the way comrade

  11. Lol.. pretty soon just being able to eat in this country will be a luxury.

  12. What’s the point in high speed internet when nobody will be able to afford phones, computers needed to access internet. Internet is not an essential service, humans have lived without it for more that 1980 years why all of a sudden will humans die without it?

  13. How about give Starlink the license it needs to provide internet service in Canada. Roger and Bell are doing all they can to stop that.

  14. Billions for satellites on balloons 😂

  15. Soon your Covid tracking apps will be able to reliably stay online 24/7!

  16. The internet is not an essential service. Clean water, affordable food, shelter and heat are.

  17. Stop the algorithms!

    Trudeau has had at least 3 ethics violations in the past 3 years. To put that in perspective no other PM has violated any ethics laws.

  19. BOOOOOOOOO
