PETITION REQUESTING CELLULAR PHONE SERVICE ON HIGHWAY 19
February 19, 2019
The District Council is making available for signature the petition for cellular phone service on Highway 19. The petition will be sent to the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural and Economic Development Canada.
The petition states as follows:
There are parts of Highway 19 that are not serviced by cellular phone service. This is an important public safety concern as it is sometimes necessary to travel more than 30 minutes to reach a cell phone service area or a land line to contact 911 in case of an accident or a need for roadside assistance.
The petition of the undersigned states that we are requesting you intervene with the Canadian Radio-Television and Communications Commission (CRTC) and our local service provider, Telus, to ensure that there is continuous coverage on Highway 19 to satisfy the need for public safety.
If you wish to sign this petition it is available at the District Office 7360 Columbia Street and Port Hardy Recreation (Pool reception) 7400 Columbia Street.
Please note in order for the petition to be valid, original signature, name and residential address must be clearly marked (No box numbers or email addresses)
