OTTAWA, Dec. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, made the following statement:
"In June, I delivered a clear message at the Canadian Telecom Summit: Our government wants to see more options and better price points offered to all Canadian families, particularly in the wireless sector.
"Bell is joining other large service providers in Canada in offering a low-cost option for consumers. We thank Bell Canada for listening and taking a step in the right direction by introducing Lucky Mobile, a low-cost wireless carrier. We encourage all of the telecom companies to continue working in the right direction and offering Canadians more flexible and affordable options.
"Our government remains focused on the three elements of telecoms service that matter most to middle-class families: quality, coverage and price."
