Quebec - 911 fees charged on cell phones don't pay for 911

Ringing up 911 cell tax
Cellphone companies will be able to pass on the cost to customers. "It's up to the firms to justify the 911 fee they already charge, Fortier said."

I had no idea that Rogers presently charges me a 911 fee and apparently just pockets it. I use a Rogers prepaid phone. This what they say on their website about it.

911 Emergency Service Access Fee

Each month, a $0.50 monthly 911 Emergency Access Fee (non-government fee) will be deducted from your Pay As You Go account. The 911 Emergency Access Fee contributes to the cost of providing customers with access to emergency services, and the costs of implementing and maintaining 911 routing in the Rogers Wireless network. This is not a government fee or tax. Certain provinces charge an additional 911 government fee.
