Rogers outage creates 'nightmare' for businesses, customers on first day of Stampede
Calgary Sun: 'Federal Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne said in a statement that the government is monitoring the situation closely and has been in contact with Rogers.
'“We expressed how important it is that this matter be resolved as soon as possible and for the company to provide prompt and clear communication directly to those impacted.”
'He said the government will use any tools at its disposal to ensure Canadians stay connected and the company meets the high standards Canadians deserve but did not specify what those tools might be.
'Calgary MP Michelle Remple Garner called on the federal government for a stronger response, as telecommunications is highly regulated by the federal government through the CRTC.
'“Today’s outage underscores potential additional risks of Canada’s current approach to regulations,” she said in an emailed statement.'
Even if Rogers won't admit it, chances are high that this was a cyberattack by the Communist Chinese; testing out their ability to mess up our financial and telecoms services. (See: Unrestricted Warfare.) They did something comparable to Australia when they turned down Huawei. (Chinese cyber attack on Australia was revenge for banning Huawei, ex-officials claim in warning shot for Britain.) Canada has to get smart and start preparing for the now inevitable Sino-American War. Xi Jinping had planned for Chinese hegemony by 2049, but there is so much weakness in the West, the CCP is like accelerating its scheme.
