Mr. Speaker, the giant telephone companies want to double the cost of using public telephones.
Pay phones are used mainly by low-income people and seniors, and those are the people who will feel the full weight of this increase.
Will the minister work with us to prevent this unjustified increase, or will he stand once again with his friends, the telecom giants?
Why do the Conservatives never stand up for low-income Canadians, the people who cannot afford cell phones, decent housing or food on their tables? On this issue, it seems no one is going to answer the call for the Conservatives.
