OTTAWA - Friendlier skies, better cable packages and cheaper phone bills - the Tories are promising next week's throne speech will have something for every disgruntled Canadian consumer.
Industry Minister James Moore was out over the weekend selling the consumer-friendly mandate the government plans to lay out between now and the next election.
"For example, we don't think it's right for Canadians to have to pay for bundled television channels that they don't watch. We want to unbundle television channels and allow Canadians to pick and pay the specific television channels that they want," he told CTV's Question Period on Sunday.
The feds will also take aim at what they deem unfair airline practices, target high credit card fees and will lower mobile phone roaming costs.
