Newspaper owner fined for breaching ‘Do Not Call’ rules

Newspaper owner fined for breaching ‘Do Not Call’ rules Metroland, the newspaper group that owns more than a hundred community papers in the Ontario region, has been fined $240,000 by the CRTC for violating the rules on marketing calls. The ‘Do Not Call’ regulations mean that marketers should not make unsolicited calls to those who have signed up to the list and there is also a requirement to provide a toll-free number at the start of calls. Metroland will implement a program to ensure that similar breaches are not repeated.
