Here's why Canada is losing the Internet war

Ordinarily, I'd be thrilled that the federal government is coughing up as much as $305 million to improve broadband high-speed Internet access for over 280,000 Canadian households. As the world goes digital, this is exactly the kind of thing we need if we're going to keep pace.

But closer scrutiny reveals just how woefully inadequate this number is, and how much further ahead other countries around the world are when it comes to equipping their citizens for the Internet Age. I wrote this piece for Yahoo Canada Finance:

My comment at Yahoo:

Conservatives love to tell us that government can't do anything right.

And every time voters make the mistake of electing conservatives, they do their best to prove it.
