Canadians will be able to give telemarketers the slip as of Sept. 30 when the national do-not-call-list officially begins operating.
Under the new rules, announced Wednesday by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, telemarketers will not be allowed to call anyone who registers either by phone with Bell Canada Inc., which is administering the list on behalf of the CRTC, or online.
Really my main problem with the industry is that they make their callers say stupid things. Like assuming I don't know what I am talking about when I say "no thank you" and launchinhg into the sales pitch again. Now to go sign up for the no call list.
