Ottawa launches website to counter telecoms' claims

The Globe reports that the Federal Government has launched a website as a counterattack against the country's three major wireless carriers that asks Canadians “are you with us?” in its public spat with BCE Inc., Rogers Communications Inc. and Telus Corp.
Industry Minister James Moore used Twitter to announce the launch of the site –, which is the property of the Conservative Party of Canada – to his 15,000-plus followers on Friday, after calling a rival public campaign website launched by the big three,, part of a “dishonest” and “misleading” campaign to skew public debate.

(Curiously, as noted above, the website is owned by the Conservative Party of Canada. Once upon a time, this would have been fought in newspaper ads.)
