I generally don’t like the CRTC but it is nice that someone is finally working to stop all this spam. We just get bombarded so much it is unbelievable. Actually recently I donated to a local charity cause a friend of mine was doing a marathon to raise money for them and since then, I have been receiving flyers once a month. It seems like the checkbox “don’t mail me stuff” never works.
