What would you do if you broke down out in the woods when riding out here?

Politicians like Vic Toews who is a conservative and hates anything somewhat liberal like Crown Corporations isn't going to do anything unless there is something in it for him like winning another election. However I do believe that the fleetnet radio network used by the Department of Holidays (Highways), and the various fire, paramedic, and RCMP agencies use MTS to help provide those services through it's communication towers. If MTS want's to maintain those contracts with those services those various agencies could threaten to terminate those contracts and go with a different provider like Telus or Rogers, and I believe Telus has been expanding it's coverage in Western Manitoba the past year or so. And if the big problem is simply money then maybe the Provincial and Federal government could meet with MTS halfway with financial aid.

You're in the woods! Should be prepared to make it your second home anyway. There are ample supplies there to keep you safe and sound, provided you've prepared yourself to do so.

I love getting out of cell range. Hate the fact that we have it here now. Nice to get out of touch with the modern times and go back to basics.

Seriously though, if you are going to the woods for a ride, a cell phone does not replace leaving a brief travel itinerary, estimated time of return, etc. with someone you know will remember to look for you if .

If you go for an unwanted swim...a cell phone is useless, but waterproof matches will save your life.

I agree with your statements. If traveling in the wilderness, "be prepared".

But because we are remote out here there are situations that cell service would be a god send. There was an elderly gentlemen out here who drove 3 times a week (60 miles 1 way) to visit his wife who was in a seniors home, summer and winter. If he had car trouble on the trip, his only option was to wait and hope someone going by would stop and help.

If this area had cell service and you don't want to use it, you can always shut your cell off.

see your point, my wife and kids are on the road daily, nice to have cell contact in that case. When out quading cell phone is the last thing to depend on.

I agree completely. When I'm out quadding I always have my GPS with me, but I also take my compass, (along with spare batteries) just in case.

The need for better communication in area's like ours is greatly needed. Many people here are just looking at having cell coverage when quadding or sledding. There are many more people that travel through the area or work in the area.

After the wild fires this past fall it became very evident the need for cell coverage. Even the fire dept and other fire fighter crews had issues with their two way radios. This became a very dangerous situation for them.

There are many companies that have had to invest into other communication devices for the crews in the bush , at great expense. Sat phones are way more expensive then cell phone plans. And just about everybody and their kids have a cell now a days.

Then their are the people who live in the area who travel everyday to Steinbach or Wpg for work. I don't know how many times I came across someone in need of help on hwy 210 who were sitting there for hrs in the cold waiting for help. Or the times I came across a accident where EMS is needed and valuable time is wasted to get to a phone. How about the people who travel on hwy 12 from Steinbach to Piney. There are many dead spots there !

So has for Rail Riders comment as to if you need a phone in the bush then stay out of it ! Well I would say tell that to the fire fighters , loggers , hunters ,trappers, quadders , sledders , berry pickers ,hwy clering crews, your local neighbor who commutes to work , your local business who recieves frieght to stock their shelves , and for that one time that ( you ) are out in the bush and desperately are in need of medical attention. You may look at your statment a little different then.

So yes do I think we need better coverage YES.
