Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a website run by and for Telecommunications Workers Union (TWU) members. If you are a Telus internet subscriber then you (as of this writing) cannot access this site (not without a reflector, at least). Telus is blocking access to its employee union website. I have commented before on the dangers of placing public policy and public infrastructure into private hands, and this is exactly what I am talking about. What would be completely unacceptable for a government is just another day at the office for a corporation. If we are not willing to require that corporations respect basic rights and freedoms, and to enforce this in law, then we should not be placing essential services into their hands. Where is our government on this?
