WHEREAS access to high speed internet and cell phone coverage has been an ongoing promise to residents of Canada from various levels of government;

AND WHEREAS many rural areas in Canada still do not have access to these services, which deters people from moving to these areas, adversely impacting economic development and business opportunities in rural BC and rural Canada:

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NCLGA and UBCM strongly encourage the Provincial and Federal Governments to move quickly toward ensuring the availability of high speed internet and cell phone service to every Canadian community.
