Two dozen ACORN members took to a Bell Store on Queen Street East in The Beaches in East Toronto this past Saturday as a part of ACORN's Digital Access to Opportunities campaign for affordable internet. In a successful attempt to disrupt the everyday business activities of a local Bell Store, ACORN members in attendance felt satisfied that CEO George Cope did hear about the action and we received confirmation that our letter was faxed to his office.
Bell Canada is the last of the three big internet providers in Canada to admit that there is a digital divide in Canada, and to start making plans to do something to bridge the digital divide they were central in creating.
ACORN Digital Access Organizing Committee is committed to doing a minimum of one action per month at a Bell-owned location. Contact the office if you want to be more involved!
