Halifax Media Co-op: ACORN Nova Scotia rallies for affordable internet access

Earlier this afternoon about ten members of the anti-poverty group ACORN held a rally in Dartmouth to bring attention to high costs of internet access and what that means for people on low income.
Katie Campbell was one of the people who attended the rally. She doesn't make a lot of money, she tells the Halifax Media Co-op.
“Internet access isn't just too expensive, it's simply prohibitive,” Campbell says. “It's cutting people off from things like online education, finding jobs, submitting your job applications and so on. It's also how you communicate with your friends and family.”
