Bring back paper statements

Rogers cellular is now imposing digital statements. I personally object because on one hand it shows a lack of support for our economy by eliminating jobs from the pulp and paper industry, shipping, printing and technology sectors accross Canada, but also increases the vulnerability of personal and private onformation.

Without consultation as to which email was to be used, Rogers has sent access information to their secure systems. If the email was sent to a family mailbox or elsewhere, others may have access to potentially damaging information. It would be interesting to read about a spouse opening the email, gaining access to the cellphone account and finding out information that opens a can of worms.

I believe that this new format of sharing personal information digitally breaches privacy laws that ordinary mail enable the protection of individual rights.

I want my paper statement back!
