Free to be idiots

The town of New Denver, BC has apparently voted to ban all cell phones. Now they are perfectly free to do so - there's no law against being an idiot. Though, to be fair, the vote was close - only about half the town are idiots.

I actuallly think this is funny. The population of New Denver is about 550 or so. To my understanding there's no cell infrastructure there now. And I don't know if there was any plans to build a tower or not. This would be like the government of Equador banning glaciers.

Good point, Reid. It seems doubtful that it would be economic for Telus to install a cell site to service fewer than 500 people (actually just for the 110 that voted in favour of cell phones).
