According to Bloomberg:
Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he'll allow telecommunications regulators to ban fees for unsolicited text messages on mobile phones, saying the charges are unfair.
``We are obviously responding to a specific concern, which is the imposition of charges for unsolicited text messages,'' Harper told reporters today in Victoria, British Columbia. ``We think this is completely unfair to consumers; completely unwarranted.''
Of course clients would much prefer free text messaging whether solicited or not as apparently happens in some other countries. Harper is proposing the basic minimal restriction on fees for texting.
