I cancelled my Telus contract as of the end of my billing cycle and the point of me doing so wasn’t solely due to their overt partisan support of the carbon tax Justin Trudeau has promised to impose on Canadians.
This tax is a horrible, controversial and unfounded idea based on bad policy, but it was Telus’ political partisanship, virtue signalling and double standards that drove me away.
As a cell phone company, they rely heavily on the mining of rare earth elements, oil and gas and employ people in third world countries that don’t have carbon taxes while lecturing us on how to live our lives.
With Telus, you never know who they’ll become as they play dress up in an attempt to hide who they really are. I know there are other companies that support this carbon tax, so why am I not cancelling with them?
Well, it’s pretty simple - they’re not hypocrites that publicly endorse politicians and virtue signal using my money.
Many have asked who to switch to, but that will depend on your preferences. Some companies support issues and causes you may not agree with so it’s your choice and I won't endorse any particular company.
I can tell you the main reason I chose my new provider is I'll save $50 per month which will soften the blow when Notley’s guilt carbon tax hits us in Alberta on January 1, 2017.
