i do concur with inapproprateness of the name change, skydome was a much better name. But to this is happening all over the place. Scotiabank is another organization slapping its name on everything that it buys... movie theatres and massive sports complexes alike.

lol what does that mean? You can be a broke bum, but it won't help you if you're dead either!

everybody dies.... but only 1% are remembered.

In Canada everything is a monopoly, telecommunication is no different.

that is true, he renamed half of Ryerson University, because he donated so much money to them. I would probably do the same thing if I was him though.

What you probably meant to say "if you have all the $$$ in the world, then you will be immortal in people's minds".

rogers is retardedly overpriced. There is new iphone pricing out though

The data plan now includes (for 30$)
-Voicemail (free visual voicemail for iphone users)
-10000 txt messages
-caller ID
(^^this means you can cancel your 11/15$ value pack, and get this instead)
-500mb data.

I also got my iphone for 199 (-50$ data credit).

Also, call retentions every 3 months and complain. I get more than 30$ in discounts every month on my bill cause i'm a mother****ing jewish crybaby
