Subject: OECD report


The Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is
scheduled to release a report April 4. According to a Toronto Star
article on the soon to be released "OECD's Communications Outlook
1997" Canada is the cheapest country in the industrial world for
surfing the Internet. The comparison was based on price of local phone
service and 20 hours a month on line. The newspaper also reports that
according to Statistics Canada about 8 percent of Canadians have
Internet access.

I signal this not to make you pine for days (and nights) spent with
cheap rates at the University of Toronto but to signal a vital area of
policy engagement: access.
