A small claims court has decided in favour of a Toronto-area BCE Inc. customer who complained after signing up for a contract term at one price, which Bell proceeded to change unilaterally, according to reports by CBC/Radio-Canada. After starting a two-year term for internet and television services for $112.93 a month with a phone representative, David Ramsay was subsequently told that the price was going up for his services two months later, read the CBC’s report. According to the CBC, the judge said the verbal agreement over the phone was binding, ruling in Ramsay’s favour. Ramsay received $1,110 in damages to cover his time and miscellaneous fees. Because the decision is not published, and happened in small claims court which generally doesn’t have significant precedential value, it’s unlikely to have much of an effect on similar cases in the future, University of Ottawa law professor Marina Pavlović said in a message to The Wire Report.
