Then again, it could be Rogers Cable TV and Internet. Rogers is from BC innit?

I just had a bout with them a few hours ago. At least three houses next and I had the cable screwed up two days ago when they were working on the poles next to my house. The young girl MADE me (yeah, right) check all my connections before she would make an appointment for a service call between 11 and 2 tomorrow (they call twice and if you don't answer they cancel). That is when I told her I was recording this call for quality control purposes on my digital voice recorder. An hour ago, a truck showed up and the TV works again.

I'd say it's Rogers that caused the riots. Too bad the vehicles set on fire weren't Rogers service vehicles. That would be "AMERICAN"!
