CBC All in a Day: Housing in Kingston Panelist

Recently, I got to be a panelist on a quick segment of All in a Day with Alan Neal for CBC Ottawa where I was asked to talk about housing in Kingston. I was the lucky panelist out of the three invitees. I spend a fair bit of time on the Kingston subreddit where I…

Low Cost Canadian Cell Phone Plans are Garbage

The requirements the CRTC has given the cell phone service providers to create low cost plans look like something written up from 2012, with features and prices that just don’t make sense for modern times.
