This is not the first time they've apparently done something like this - the CBC has had previous stories on seniors with no computers or cell phones at all being sold full Internet packages.

I could list a dozen more stories, but you get the idea. And the same thing happens every time. Once it gets bad PR, Bell apologizes, fixes it - then goes right back and does it again. And again. And again. I wish the big polling firms would do a survey on who's the most hated company in Canada. Would Bell rank #1 or would that dubious honour go to Rogers? Either way, they'd jockey for first and second place.

The Source really should merge with Bell World stores since, clearly they both intend to operate in the same manner.

You are right. 

And the sad reality is that the majority of the large publicly traded corps. all own shares in each other to the permissible limit that the various regulatory bodies allow.
