How many of you signed up for this nonsense program that forces those telemarketers to stop phoning you if you put your name on a do not call list?
How many of you feel you received even more calls after putting your name on this list?
How many of you wished the CRTC would do something more useful with the time you are paying them, than trying to help big monopolies get even bigger with that internet scam called “Metering the Internet?”
Well if you thought the CRTC was in the back pocket of the big phone companies you might want to read this article on how you can take action and there is little if nothing they can do to stop you.
Understanding the problem.
The big phone companies would never kill phone spam, because they are the ones who get paid for every call that is made. Second the laws put in place that are supposed to protect you have holes big enough to allow freight trains through your phone.
If the CRTC had any backbone at all they would pass a ruling that would force all those who call for self profit reasons to adhere to a do not call me list.
Why has neither the Federal nor Provincial government taken action to protect the phone you are paying for?
In one word, it’s called the Workers Compensation Board.
Even when the Supreme Court of Appeals rules that an injured worker is fully disabled from working, even in a part time capacity, the Workers Compensation Board ends up overruling the courts by declaring that very same person is capable of working for a telemarketing agency.
The government even subsidizes the training of injured workers through the Workers Compensation Board where the WCB actually pays for the wages of the prospective telemarketer during training.
Who is the number one employer in Canada?
- The Canadian Government
- The Provincial Government.
Who stands to lose the most if telemarketing is disallowed by the choice of the people? That is very obvious if you understand how both the Federal and Provincial Governments have been saving millions by forcing severely suffering workers into telemarketing jobs.
I can bet there are few telemarketing companies who do not throw investment money into political campaign funds.
Well enough is enough; there is something you can do. (I know because I have done it and it works perfectly at blocking “all” unwanted phone calls.
HOW TO BLOCK PHONE SPAM ON YOUR HOME PHONE
First you must have a computer that has a modem, the old kind, the 56k V.90 or even better the V.92 modem, and a phone that has Caller ID.
