It’s about damn time, but IMO it should be sooner, like after a year. A lot of these carriers are taking advantage of their customers and costs/plans over time are not competitive. So this makes sense and it’s a step forward.
“Wireless customers will be able to cancel their cellphone contracts after two years without any penalties even if they’ve signed up for longer terms under a new code of conduct unveiled Monday by the CRTC.
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission says the new code will apply to new wireless contracts starting Dec. 2.
It’s part of a new set of national standards for the content and clarity of cellphone contracts.
The CRTC is also capping extra data charges at $50 per month and international data roaming charges at $100 per month to avoid huge, surprise bills.
The regulator will require providers to allow customers to unlock their devices after 90 days, or immediately if they pay the full amount of the device.” ~CityTV

“Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the only multi-platform, first-person, modern shooter exclusively designed around the sniper experience. It takes the bulls-eye precision of its predecessor to new and exciting heights, offering more diverse sniper challenges; a rebuilt AI system and the thrilling “one shot, one kill” precision that made the original a huge hit, selling 3 million copies worldwide. Taking advantage of the advanced capabilities of the CryENGINE3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 also delivers striking graphic environments.” ~Steam

What are you doing on Geek Pride Day?
“Geek Pride Day (Spanish: Día del orgullo friki ) is an initiative to promote geek culture, celebrated annually on 25 May. The date was chosen as to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film, A New Hope on 25 May 1977 (see Star Wars Day), but shares the same date as two other similar fan “holidays”: Towel Day, for fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy by Douglas Adams, and the Glorious 25th of May for fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld…” ~Wiki
Hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend
“Victoria Day (in French: Fête de la Reine) is a federal Canadian public holiday celebrated on the last Monday before May 25, in honour of Queen Victoria’s birthday. The date is also, simultaneously, that on which the current reigning Canadian sovereign’s official birthday is recognized. It is sometimes informally considered as marking the beginning of the summer season in Canada, analogous to how the timing of the holiday Memorial Day is regarded in the United States. The holiday has been observed since before Canada was formed, originally falling on the sovereign’s actual birthday, and continues to be celebrated in various fashions across the country on the fixed date; the holiday has always been a distinctly Canadian observance. It is a statutory holiday federally, as well as in six of Canada’s ten provinces and all three of its territories.” ~Wiki
