CCTS invites public to a Twitter Town Hall

Will answer questions about the Wireless Code and its full applicability

Ottawa, June 2, 2015 – The Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services (CCTS) will host its first-ever Twitter Town Hall on Tuesday, July 7, with University of Ottawa Professor Michael Geist acting as moderator.

“Since the Wireless Code came into full effect on June 3, 2015, we’ve noticed some people are still confused about what it is and how it works,” said CCTS Commissioner and CEO Howard Maker. “We think Twitter offers a good venue for discussion, and we’re pleased to have an expert like Professor Geist onboard to help with the session.”

The event will be held in both official languages. English-speaking participants are asked to pose questions with the hashtag #wirelesscode. French-speaking participants should use #codesansfil. CCTS will monitor the hashtag for questions posed in the days leading up to the event, which will run between 1:30 and 2:30 pm, Eastern Standard Time, on July 7. Follow us on Twitter: @ccts_cprst.
