Libya, Egypt, 'We only want what you have' and they can't leave, these are their countries, they just want FREEDOM.

  Toronto, CANADA - How very sad, we hear about all the people from USA and Canada getting out of Libya, but what about those that cannot get out. Many have the resources to get the borders and go to Tunisia and other countries but what about those that must stay and accept this horrible regime forever.
One thing I never heard reported in the news, for either country was that the government would fall if the leaders left. This is not true, since in my opinion the governments are well run by the many departments and agencies that currently take care of day to day business. Yes there may be a need for fine tuning, but the reality is these countries have been operating well for many years.

Where is the United Nations, what are they waiting for, more bloodshed? They should move in immediately and get their peace keeping troops into this troubled area to help the citizens who have no where else to go.
I have no "horse in the race" I am just a regular Canadian concerned about these people, all they want is what most countries in the world want, and that is peace and freedom to choose their way in life. Is that really too much to ask? We must all help these people and not let this continue. Contact your local government representatives and let them know you are outraged at what is happening to these wonderful people and to their countries.
We can make a difference.

I hear people complaining that "Is this the only news story" yes it is, if this continues to happen without any intervention by the world community this could happen in any country, and this is not right.

Bell FibeTV/internet bandwidth issues, "Why am I being charged so much on my internets"

March 11/2011 – TORONTO – Well I did speak too soon, same problems (pixillating and sound-outs on the TV side) after 1-2 days, I don’t know what I’m going to do now. Just so depressed by all this and feel like jumping off a bridge, but I shall still hang in there and hope for the best, but it means more calls to Bell Fibe and another round of service calls. You can read all our encounters and results CLICK HERE.

March 6/2011 – TORONTO Called Bell FibeTV today to compliment them that the TV side is working much better but the final determination will be made when it is trouble free.
Today I want to bring up a revelation about the bandwidth issues we are all encountering across Canada with Bell and other large internet providers. Tech Savvy and other smaller operations have been giving unlimited bandwidth for years and the big guys don’t like it.

Bell Canada FibeTV/internet

The "BIG" guys
As I said, I called Bell FibeTV today to compliment the techie for the work he did yesterday for my FibeTV signal and he asked me “is there anything else I can help you with?” and the floodgates opened. I started to ask him why I was charged just under 22GB for three separate days in February 2011. My total usage for the month according to Bell’s own Bandwidth Usage Monitor was about 50GB which fell under my bandwidth limit for the month, but I wanted to try and understand why I was accounted for using such a large amount of bandwidth over three days, when my regular usage is well less than 1GB per day. This question was actually a side issue and I never really gave it much thought, since I was not being charged for any overages. (CLICK HERE for larger view of usage monitor)
