DNCL violations will cost Montreal-area company $24,000

OTTAWA - Les Aliments S.R.C. Inc. has been fined $24,000 for violating the country’s national do not call list (DNCL) rules. Between January 6 and March 17, 2011, the CRTC said that it received “numerous complaints” in relation to telemarketing telecommunications made by the Montreal-area food delivery service company to consumers whose numbers were registered on the national do not call list. The Commission denied an appeal by the company claiming that it had an existing relationship with one of the complainants, and that the fee of $6,000 per violation was excessive.  Payment is due by April 23, 2012. www.crtc.gc.ca
