Wind Mobile Launches Canadian Mobile Bill of Rights

Discount wireless carrier Wind Mobile has launched an initiative called the Canadian Mobile Bill of Rights.

Housed on Facebook, the so-called "bill of rights" is aimed at eliciting the opinions of Canadian consumers on how they'd like to see the nation's wireless industry change. The initiative follows a decision by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission to build a national mobile wireless code of conduct to improve the practices of telcos in Canada.

"We’re encouraging people to help us make a stand for mobile freedom," Wind says, suggesting consumers like their Facebook page, participate in their poll, and contact the CRTC.

According to the bill's Facebook page, Wind wants the CRTC eliminate early termination fees, eliminate arbitrary fees, make free call control mandatory, and create clear and simple contracts. Safe to say most Canadians would agree with these basic guidelines.

A poll on the page shows that early termination fees irk Canadians the most, garnering 59% of early votes.
