The Canadian government is giving the thumbs up to mobile insurance and its popularity is expected to continue as the federal government makes its first official decision on what to do next.
A key consideration is whether the new national mobile insurance market will be competitive.
“I’m looking forward to reviewing the options for a national mobile plan,” said Liberal Leader Rona Ambrose in a tweet Thursday.
“Canadians are going to be paying for their mobile plans in a way that works for them.”
Ambrose’s tweet comes as she seeks to rally support among Conservatives to keep her party’s majority in Parliament.
With the Liberals holding a commanding lead over the Conservatives in most ridings, Ambrose said she wants to get a final decision on whether the government will re-open the national mobile market by the end of next week.
“We’re going to take a look at the options, but we’re not going to rule anything out until we get all of the facts and then we’ll make a decision,” Ambrose said.
Ambrose says she’s been encouraged by the positive responses from Canadians to her government’s decision to give the thumbs-up to the national wireless market.
“The fact that there are some Canadians saying, ‘We can afford it,’ I think that’s a sign of optimism,” Ambrose told CBC News.
“It speaks volumes to how popular that is.”
