Bell Mobility to appeal ruling in 911 lawsuit – North – CBC News.

Bell Mobility says the company plans to appeal a Northwest Territories Supreme Court ruling on a matter he believes “hadn’t even been certified for trial.”

On Friday, Justice Ron Veale ruled Bell is liable to nearly 30,000 cellphone users in the N.W.T., Yukon and Nunavut who paid for 911 services they didn’t receive.

The class-action lawsuit dates back to 2007, when Yellowknifers James Anderson and his son Samuel first filed the case. They complained Bell Mobility was charging customers 75 cents a month — or $9 a year — for a service that isn’t available.

A 911 operator isn’t available anywhere in the territories, except Whitehorse. Instead, residents call a 10-digit number for emergency services.
