Canada’s NDP campaign slams fees for paper billing, says hurts most vulnerable citizens

November 08, 2012 - 06:15

TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2012 (CBC) -The NDP has launched a campaign to protest against extra charges many companies levy on customers who receive their monthly bills in the mail rather than choosing online billing.

According to the NDP, in the past two years, more and more companies, especially internet providers, phone companies and banks, are charging fees ranging from a dollar to up to four dollars for paper billing.

"This is a new fee for an old service," said NDP Andrew Cash, speaking at a press conference. "We're calling on the government and its relevant agencies to stop this rip-off, stop those pay-to-pay fees."
