Quote: “A lot of times consumers [say] ‘Oh, no, I don’t want to make a big fuss about it. It is just about the principle. I don’t want to make a complaint – I am not a complainer. That’s not who I am.’ But I would advise those people, do it. This is why we were created.”

Education and work history: Bachelor’s degree in human rights and law and Masters in conflict studies. Previously worked at Human Rights Internet, an Ottawa advocacy group, and in the Balkans for a grassroots non-governmental organization.
Quote: “People are frustrated. A lot of their frustration comes from the fact that ... they’ve been talking with the [telecom’s] customer service, trying to get this resolved themselves. And they might be getting the runaround or not the answer. They feel like they are not being listened to.”

Quote: “When people call in and are upset, they are really not upset with you. They are upset with the service provider. So as long as you are able to shake that off, there really is no problem.”
