RIP Teddy, even though you keep taking my money, I'll keep getting as much free cell phones off your business as possible.

Regardless of price, Rogers has never let down with their service, reception is great and they selection of phones is one of the best. As for customer service, thats a hit and miss.

Just because the man became a billionaire off his companies doesnt mean he was ripping people off. He was a successful and smart phylantophist and his results support that.

This man was Canada's Donald Trump. Hate him or not, atleast pay your respects to a deceased person, who destroyed Bell Canada's monopoly.

Nice to say to a guy that has contributed more to Canada than probably 10 of us combined.

He's given back quite a bit to Canada. And if it wasn't for his company we'd have even less competition in telecommunication.

Try reading his autobiography and you'll see how he started off. He worked hard to get where he was.
