Professor Becky Lentz, along with students from OpenMedia at McGill, organized an evening workshop as part of OpenMedia.ca's Cell Phone Horror Story campaign. The workshop was held to prepare a submission of interventions and comments to the CRTC's (Canadian Radio-Television & Telecommunications Commission) notice of consultation 2012-557-1 for the establishment of a mandatory code for mobile wireless services.

The CRTC will hold a hearing to address the matters brought up by the notice of consultation in Gatineau on February 11, 2013. The proceedings are meant to establish a code that will "address the clarity and content of mobile wireless service contracts and related issues for consumers."
