Adds Expertise in Telecommunications, Broadcasting and Class Actions
OTTAWA – The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), today announced the recent election of four new directors to its Board, all experts in either telecommunications, broadcasting or class actions:
“PIAC’s extensive work on behalf of consumers before the CRTC requires the utmost guidance and insight,” said John Lawford, Executive Director and General Counsel of PIAC. “We are therefore thrilled to add to our Board persons with unparalleled experience to guide our communications advocacy, as well as an expert in consumer class actions as this sector becomes more litigious,” he added.
PIAC is a federally incorporated not-for-profit and registered charity that advocates for consumer interests, and in particular vulnerable consumer interests, in the provision of important public services. PIAC is known for its representation of consumer, low-income and seniors groups before the CRTC, arguing for better services, more choice and consumer protection for customers of Internet, wireless, telephone and broadcasting services.
