Ottawa Bell Let’s Talk Protest

“Protesters stood outside Place Bell in downtown Ottawa on Wednesday, coinciding with Bell Let’s Talk Day, the company’s annual campaign to raise awareness of mental health struggles.

About 50 people braved the cold to demand the telecommunications giant lower the cost of outgoing phone calls for inmates in the province’s jails, and allow inmates to dial out to cell phones. Right now, inmates can only make collect calls to landlines, preventing many from connecting with loved ones.”
