Yes, I do agree with you! Especially those who have pull and connections
and get it up right away, only to find the child wanted to run away for a while
and finally comes home!
Oh, Oh, and yes, it being the 4th and 5th time only!
I am well aware that the crtc passed this, but before implementation, did Rogers (the carrier) even pose any questions and conditions as what has been hashed over of late?
The carriers have no choice over the look, sound or implementation schedule of the alerts. Yes, the carriage is mandated by the CRTC, however the CRTC does not have any control beyond that. If you're looking to do something about it, as was suggested earlier, a little research is in order, starting with this thread. Included in earlier pages are the following posts, which may be a good place to start:
Fwiw, from the following Government of Canada site comes the following:
Common Look and Feel Guidance
To encourage public feedback, version 1.2 of the CLF Guidance document will be posted for a 30-day review period. The draft document will be available, and comments accepted by email at Interoperability@ps-sp.gc.ca, until December 2, 2016 at 9:00 p.m. EST. Any comments, or proposed edits, will be considered by the CLF Working Group and accepted, rejected or deferred.
So, it looks like you missed the opportunity to propose changes to the guidance document by 1 month. Perhaps in another 3 or 4 years another opportunity will present itself.
How frequently will I see these messages?
You will only see an alert in the event of an imminent emergency or during testing of the system
The amber alert started here in Ottawa about 30 minutes ... for a child abduction over 1800 km from here and the suspect is heading WEST.
You have a database filled with our addresses. You certainly have the know how to create an algorithm to send alerts to confined areas and broader areas as required by the alert. All within the CRTC's guidelines.
I pay way to much to continually put up with bad reception, service interruption, lousy pay per view. AND do you EVER call me to offer me great discounts, A loyal customer for 20 years? Noooo, those a only if you're a new customer. You want to keep customers? Get off your seats and come up with a solutions that will keep the CRTC and your customers happy.
Is there anyway I can stop this, it's been going on for hours now. I feel terrible for this child. Unless they walk into my house at 3am I'm not going to see them.
Does the sound have to be so loud, my grandma 👵 almost had a heart ❤️ attack. On one tv the exit button worked, not on the rest unfortunately. Can't even watch a recorded program 😞
Uhmmm no because here's the problem.
The alerts go on far long after the child is found & here's the kicker they go on forever and they are so far away,for example the one last night went on here in Ottawa and the alert was for Rainy River, near the Manitoba boundary. The system needs a slight fix VERY ANNOYING & SO FAR AWAY !
If this continues im out,,see ya Rogers
Rogers, Bell and Telus control the CRTC far more that you think, don't be naive.
Everytime this amber altert happens on my TV I'm reminded I don't really need cable and everytime I bring it up to my wife I convince her more and more to get rid of it. I figure she'll crack soon and I can be free of this stupidity and Rogers gluttony.
The amber alert was implemented stupidly, which is of no surprise really. I can understand a text message but hours upon hours of the same message just demonstrates how stupid the authorities are.
