Pricey cellphone plans and slow connections in Canada feel as inevitable and grumble-worthy as miserable winters.
But it doesn’t have to be so, politicians are telling Canadians. Wireless and broadband internet prices — and access to data and the web — have become an important theme of the 2019 election.
NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has made affordable plans a rallying cry of his campaign, promising to put a cap on prices.
The Green Party of Canada has pledged “reliable, affordable, high-speed internet” for all.
The Liberal Party says they will cut cellphone bills by 25% if re-elected in October.
The Conservative Party is expected to announce their position on cell phone and internet bills within the next week.
Canadians pay some of the highest cell bills in the world, with monthly plans ranging from around $40 to over $120.
Day 3 (part 3) To say it was a muddy day is an understatement, I thought the mud would never end! It was an exhausting day just trying to avoid it all.

Wish we were back out West on vacation!
Lake Minnewanka, Alberta.
Lake Minnewanka is a large glacial lake five kilometres from the town of Banff. The lake is 21 kilometres long and 466 feet deep. It's a beautiful spot, popular for picnicking, mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, diving, and snowshoeing.
For over 100 centuries, people have camped and hunted along the original shores of Lake Minnewanka. The indigenous Stoney Nakoda First Nations people called it Minn-waki (Lake of the Spirits) because they respected and feared the lake for its resident spirits. Early European settlers later named it Devil’s Lake.

We created Clear Lake Country as a way to grow our community, not just in physical size or in number of visits - but to create and bring together a group of human beings who are in love with adventure, with exploration, and with the National Park that we are forever grateful to be able to live and work in. Our hope is to inspire a little kindness, a lot of ideas and to build our community up and inspire positive change!
We feel like it is time we do more, push for more and be better. So, we are launching a new campaign to encourage all visitors, residents or business owners to contribute in a small way to preserving the natural beauty and integrity of the place we all love!
What we want to see are photos, selfies and stories about how you are contributing in any way - small or large - to reducing your footprint in @clearlakecountry. Use the hashtag #CLCleavenotrace to share your contribution! Maybe you purchased your first reusable water bottle, or the business you work for eliminated plastic straws or started their own composting program - or maybe you had your Kayak inspected as part of the Riding Mountain National Park Aquatic Invasive species prevention program. We want to see it all!
Hiking around 45 kilometers in 3 days is certainly an undertaking, especially if you have ever been backpacking before! But man, the sweeping vistas of the Tonquin Valley and the Ramparts (pictured here) are certainly a sight for sore eyes and sore feet! I don't think I have ever been so astounded by the beauty in my backyard before! So glad @anabelleboisclair got me out there! Also, Happy Birthday!! 😍

Every spring song birds sing their hearts out in Ivvavik National Park. Although their is not the same species diversity as in more southerly parts of Canada.The species that do migrate to this area are privy to the seemingly never ending daylight, large tracks of untouched habitat, lower density of predators and a short but extremely productive season to raise their young.
Farewell, summer ☀️2019! It’s been such an adventure-filled one with a lot of firsts and so many, many highlights! But perhaps, one of the most exciting parts was visiting the magnificent Canadian Rockies 🏔 with all its breathtaking lakes ; walking atop the Athabasca Glacier was exhilarating and unforgettable ‼️ And of course, it was such an amazing experience staying in the mountain resort that is the Fairmont Banff Springs 🏰 which feels for all the world like an elegant and ancient castle, albeit one with all the modern conveniences. #banffnationalpark#lakelouise#CanadianRockies#parkscanada#getoutdoors#getoutside#instagood#explorebanff#banffgondola#athabascaglacier

Not technically a fjord, but basically a fjord. Just go to Newfoundland already. ✈️⛴️
Super excited to have had the opportunity to do and episode of @danfromasper and I show, @adrinkwithjimanddan, in @littlebrownjugbrewing Taproom.
James and all the staff were super accommodating, and even helped a fan get his first taste of LBJ, which he loved of course.
Podcast goes live tomorrow at 9 am on YouTube, Spotify, Play Music, Google podcasts, and (🤞) iTunes.
Next time I need to leave for time to shoot this before the show. Shot all of this in like 30 min, with zero plan. So plugging myself now.. You need video work done? Hit me up, I'm your man. 👊

A lighthouse doesn't save the ships; it doesn't go out and rescue them, it's just this pillar that helps to guide people home.

We like recharging with a nature-filled getaway, like Beauvert Lake in Alberta's Jasper National Park. For some fall travel ideas, click the bio link. Share with #ForbesTravelGuide for a chance to be featured! #Regram : @mthiessen

Our backyard is stunning and we want future generations to be able to have the opportunity to explore #BanffNationalPark , too. That’s why we are dedicated to our sustainability efforts in our hotel. How do you explore sustainably? #LakeLouise 📷: @alicialaceyphoto
