Regulator sets 2010 deadline to upgrade 911 system

Today's Globe and Mail reports that the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has ordered Canada's mobile phone providers to upgrade their 911 systems by 2010. The reports states that Canada has fallen behind other nations such as the United States.

So, as I stated before there really weren't all that many people who died but as the problem is likely to get worse and people should be able to trust 911 I'm happy to see this action. I especially like when regulators and government force private companies to do things.
