Telus is apologizing, after it tweeted support for the federal Liberal government’s controversial carbon pricing plan.
Telus says it was not meant to be partisan or political, but it appeared that way.
Hundreds of customers threatened to end their contracts after the telecom giant tweeted ”as a founding member of @smartprosperity, we support @JustinTrudeau & @cathmckenna in putting a #PriceOnCarbon.”
Wireless competitors quickly jumped at the opportunity trying to secure new business from disgruntled customers.
They tweeted at the angry Telus customers, offering their services.
