Frances Nunziata sent out a press release about the subject. Along with Mike Sullivan, Nunziata deserves much credit for getting the big telcos to change their practices. She put a motion to the Police Services Board encouraging the cell phone providers to change. She said, “I am thrilled to hear that the CWTA has taken these steps to help curb cell phone theft. I continue to be hopeful that disabling phones once they are stolen will … deter theft.”
The Federal NDP and Mike Sullivan have continued to push for a faster rollout of the database, which may not be implemented until September, 2013. This weekend, the NDP issued a press release saying that action is needed “much sooner” than that.
