Those are people in need and if you welcome them maybe they'll be potential customers afterwards! Give them the first month free for example.

What do you think?

Well seeing as WIND is doing this first, Koodo may just follow soon! Koodo is a leader at following! 

If another carrier didn't do this, Koodo would not for sure though haha

Lets not! Take the subsidies value and apply to lower current Ontaio prices.

I agree with 5S, Robert's idea is great in theory, but Ontario is already stuck subsidizing the low cost of plans in MB/SK/QC. I don't thing it's a good idea to start doing this. Plus, there has to be more important things these people need than a cell phone and plan...

I think what you mean Mathieu is that the rest of Canada is subsidizing the MB/SK/QC plans. But I agree, refugees don't need cell phones, they need the necessities.

Although Robert's suggestion is a great idea, I agree with Mathieu and Mark that what these refugees need the most are the basic necessities.

Sorry Robert. I should have acknowledged your idea for what it is. Being both noble and charitable, in all the places that makes it heart filled and felt,

My subsidies issue aside, I feel Mark comes closer with NECESSITIES. I just read that some Families are exiting their flights and walking out of the airport, into Canada's colder weather, without WINTER JACKETS.
