make your voice heard: Save the Internet

Save the Internet :

Take a look at this link and join the fight for internet freedom.
While this site is geared towards political action in the US congress, Canadians can offer their support. Let's not be too smug - our government may well follow suit.

Right now the U.S. Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the First Amendment of the Internet -- a principle called "network neutrality" that preserves the free and open Internet.

Politicians are being wooed by people like AT&T's CEO, who says "the Internet can't be free."

The cable and phone lobby is bombarding Washington with TV ads urging Congress to support their plans to seize control of the Internet. According to Jeff Chester, the industry is spending nearly $1 million a week on an ad blitz to convince elected officials to side with AT&T and Verizon — and against their constituents.
