#NetNeutrality is not optional

The Internet is not a luxury.

In 2017 it is a necessity of life.

We find jobs on the Internet.

We do business on the Internet.

We get our news, connect with our families and friends, and we learn things on the Internet.

Net Neutrality isn’t just about companies.

It’s about people.

Today anyone can make a website.
Write a blog.  Or many.
Share their photographs.
Or books.
Or artwork.
Or videos.

Or music.

And even sell it.

Anyone can hang out his shingle as a journalist.

Or be politically active.

Anyone can talk to anyone.

Read books.

Learn computer animation.

Watch movies.

We all need a free and open Internet.

#NetNeutrality is not optional.

#NetNeutrality is not optional.
One of the many things I use the Internet for is to share videos I make. This was from a video I was recording of Cory Doctorow’s talk at the University of Waterloo on December 4th, 2017.

Canadians (and folk anywhere in the world) can sign this petition.

Americans need to call their congress people, which is REALLY easy to do here
