In 2008 the Federal Government, hot off their 2006 launch of the "free" dial-a-weather-and-traffic-update (511 on your dial) will issue the "free" 311 service for instant sports scores, the joke of the day and your horoscope.
Plus they will launch their new slogan:
Government of Canada, doing what AM radio does, just worse.
Can someone please tell me why the Government of Canada decided Canadians weren't getting good enough service from radio stations and "had" to launch a taxpayer-funded telephone service to find out the weather and traffic?
Newsflash: If you can't get AM radio where you live, you're not likely going to get cell coverage either.
