The National Bank of Canada takes a very arrogant approach .
A Federal legislation will end fees for getting monthly bills on paper:
The federal government will introduce legislation to end what is called pay-to-pay, that is charging people for a monthly bill on paper. The telecom firms met under the auspices of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunication Commission on Thursday and agreed to exempt some people, including seniors, the disabled, military vets and people without Internet access. The CRTC said it wasn’t enough. The minister says Canadians expect lower prices and better service from the telecoms. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre has estimated consumers pay $734 million every year in fees to get bills on paper.“We do not believe that Canadians should pay more to receive a paper copy of their telephone or wireless bill,” Moore said. Porking the barrel with extra costs is an immoral business practice. They have a bad motivation for to keep the extra fees in place for as long as possible. The cost of invoicing a client is a normal business cost.
