This is the fifth and last blog entry of 5-blog series about Sorenson Communications, Inc’s impact on Canada.
It is my responsibility as a Deaf American Citizen to share this information based on facts, reliable sources and supporting evidence to you. Then you can get involved to make things right with FCC and our Deaf Canadian citizens.
Now, you have read the previous blog about Deaf Canadian’s long fight to get VRS, and how Sorenson got involved with TELUS for the carrot and stick experiment.
Today is January 14, 2012. Tomorrow is January 15, 2012.
Tomorrow, Deaf Canadians lost VRS.
Tomorrow, is the deadline for us to give comments to FCC.
The 109-page document is still not accessible to Deaf Americans. There is no ASL videos available.
We can demand FCC for the postponement of the deadline.
We can demand FCC to provide ASL videos of their 109-page document.
We can go to FCC website and leave a comment there. Express your feelings about having call centers in Canada, and how it is hurting Deaf Canadians.
We can go to FCC website to express our concerns about win-back strategies, porting 10-digit number, confusion, and many more.
The link to FCC website here and please type proceeding number 10-51 or 03-123.
That is our responsibility to educate ourselves. It is our responsibility to remain vigilant.
