Digital economy round table -- Feb.11

February 15, 2010

On Feb. 11, Liberal MP and Industry, Science and Technology Critic Marc Garneau held a Roundtable on the Digital Economy.  It was mostly an occasion for industry players to present their version of telecom reform.  However, Michael Hennessy, Senior Vice President, Regulatory Affairs, TELUS noted that one of the biggest problems in this sector was digital literacy and that such programs ought to be funded from the proceeds of spectrum auctions. Those working to keep the 3000+ Industry Canada community access sites alive might want to send him a note of support.
